Brigadier-General Alain Tremblay to Join Rheinmetall Canada

OTTAWA, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Rheinmetall Canada, the Canadian subsidiary of international defence equipment supplier Rheinmetall Defence, is proud to announce that Brigadier-General Alain Tremblay will join the company's executive team as Vice-President of Business Development upon his retirement from the Canadian Forces.

"Alain Tremblay is a respected leader who has served Canadians with distinction at home and abroad," said the President and Chief Executive Officer of Rheinmetall Canada, Dr. Andreas Knackstedt. "He brings the operational experience and understanding of army requirements that will help our company better equip and protect members of the Canadian Forces, as well as those of other friendly nations."

Brigadier-General Tremblay recently announced his retirement from the Canadian Army, completing a distinguished career of close to 34 years, including commanding forces during operations in Afghanistan and Bosnia.  In Canada, he made important contributions to the future of the Canadian military during his assignments in the Canadian Forces Transformation Team, as the Director General Land Capability Development, and as Senior Policy Advisor at the Privy Council Office. General Tremblay retires from his current post as Commander of Land Force Quebec Area and Joint Task Force East where he led the activities of more than twelve thousand personnel.

"I am excited to join an innovative and dynamic company such as Rheinmetall who is keen to provide the best equipment to our military men and women", said Tremblay. "This is a world-class company known for getting things done and has delivered results to the Canadian Forces and many of our allies.  I look forward to contributing to the continued success of Rheinmetall in Canada. "

Brigadier-General Tremblay will take his new position on March 7th. He will make the transition to his new responsibilities with the same integrity and professionalism displayed during his military career by respecting all Government of Canada and Canadian Forces rules for former public office holders.
