MONTRÉAL, Feb. 4, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Jean-Guy Desjardins, Chairman of the Board and CEO, and Sylvain Brosseau, President and COO of Fiera Capital, have both earned spots in the Finance et Investissement Top 5. This means that they rank among the five people deemed most influential in Québec's finance industry during 2014. The honour was announced last night at the annual gala celebrating Québec's Top 25 financial leaders. This is the third time in five years that Jean-Guy Desjardins has been included in the Top 5, including two years as Personality of the Year, while Sylvain Brosseau advanced to the Top 5 after being named among the Top 25 in 2012 and 2013.
"This double honour clearly underlines the importance of Fiera Capital in the world of Québec finance," noted Desjardins. "I'm very proud to be sharing the honour with Sylvain Brosseau, whose merits are widely recognized – and rightly so. It is an honour that highlights the progress our company has made, thanks to the efforts of our entire team, all striving to reach the highest goals."
"I am thrilled to have risen to the Top 5 in our industry," admitted Sylvain Brosseau. "It is highly motivating to work in a firm that achieves success through its talent, drive and innovation. I can rely on solid support from all the members of our team, and we are all tremendously proud to belong to this great organization."
The Top 25 of the Québec finance industry, a brainchild of Finance et Investissement magazine, honours 25 leaders who have distinguished themselves over the last year, both through their own achievements and through the influence they wield in the industry. The winners are selected by a jury made up of personalities from the finance industry and of the editors of Finance et Investissement and Les Affaires magazines.
