MONTREAL, April 30, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Keolis Canada is very pleased to announce that Marie Hélène Cloutier, Vice-President, Passenger Experience, Sales and Marketing, received the Énergie Valéro award for an exceptional up-and-coming woman in the large business category at the prestigious Les Mercuriades competition of the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ). The winner was selected for her dedication, ability to constantly raise the bar, and talent for building and inspiring a team. The award was presented at a gala held the evening of Monday, April 29 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
"We are extremely proud to see Marie Hélène recognized for her leadership and influence by her peers," said Patrick Gilloux, President and Chief Operating Officer of Keolis Canada. "Marie Hélène's success, which comes from her pursuit of excellence and tremendous commitment to her field, proves to me yet again that we need to put our trust in the rising generation to energize companies and help them advance along their transformation path. Since starting in her position just over four years ago, she has carved out a key place at Keolis Canada, a Franco-Quebec company, and has stood out in its entire network, which employs over 63,000 people in 16 countries. Our organization is very fortunate to benefit from her expertise and skills in digital, multimodality and intelligent mobility management, marketing and sales strategies, communications, government relations, and stakeholder relations."
Marie Hélène sees this award as motivation for women like her who work in transportation or in areas that are still very male-dominated. "It is a great honour to be chosen from among the inspiring business women nominated with me who also represent the next generation and who share a desire to build the Quebec of tomorrow," said Marie Hélène Cloutier. "I am also enormously privileged to work with a rewarding and motivating team that shares my aspirations and convictions. This award is in large part thanks to them, their support, and especially their trust."
With over 10 years of experience in the organizational transition and adaptation to digital logic and behaviour, Marie Hélène has a passion for launching and managing projects and making business visions a reality. In 2014, she was named to the Les Affaires list of the top 30 under 30 in information technology. At Keolis Canada, she is responsible for the digital and multimodal transition and sales and marketing strategies and also takes on the leadership of communications and government relations.
