Laurentian Bank Congratulates the Winners of the Aces of Finance Competition
MONTREAL, May 9, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank extends its
congratulations to all the financial executives who were honoured yesterday
evening at the Aces of Finance gala. The Bank's President and CEO, Mr. Réjean
Robitaille, served as Honorary President of the event.
Organized by the Québec section of FEI Canada (Financial Executives
International Canada), the Aces of Finance competition was created to promote
greater awareness of the role and importance of financial executives within
organizations. It constitutes a veritable window on the profession of
financial officers and the tasks and leadership responsibilities the position
entails. "As a prime player and employer within Québec's financial sector,
Laurentian Bank is particularly proud to be associated with this competition."
underlined Mr. Robitaille to the guests in attendance at the gala. "We believe
it is very important to celebrate excellence within this sphere of activity."
Financial executives are increasingly playing a catalyst role in organizations
today, with their contribution extending beyond the provision of their
financial expertise to the formulation of highly innovative ideas and
strategies. "These executives play a critical role in promoting their
organizations' growth and business within a constantly changing environment,"
added Mr. Robitaille.
The competition also includes an Homage Award component that publicly
recognizes financial executives who have stood apart in an exemplary manner
over the course of their career. This year, the Québec section of FEI Canada
presented the award to Mr. André Imbeau, Co-founder, Vice-Chair and Corporate
Secretary of CGI Group Inc. Mr. Imbeau has served as a financial executive for
more than a quarter-century within this flagship of the Québec economy.
Today, he also sits on the Boards of numerous other prominent organizations.
