MONTREAL, Feb. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Mrs. Isabelle Hudon, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Société du Havre de Montréal, wishes to announce the temporary return of Mr. Jacques Coté as President and Chief Executive Officer of the not-for-profit organisation managing the Bonaventure Expressway project that will lead to the creation of the Quartier Bonaventure.
Mr. Coté was the first President and Chief Executive Officer of the Société du Havre de Montréal, from 2002 to 2007. For a number of months, Mr. Coté will replace Mr. Gaëtan Rainville, who has had to temporarily leave his duties for health reasons.
During this period, Mr. Coté will not act as a member of the Board of Transport 2000 Québec.
Following a thirty year career at Canadian Pacific, he became an active member of the team that created the Société du Havre de Montréal. Since 2001 he has provided consulting services in corporate strategy, particularly for organisations in the rail industry.
The mission of the Société du Havre de Montréal is to propose the major elements in a concerted plan for the development of the harbourfront and the urban areas around it, as well as an implementation structure and a financial strategy.
The corporation recently recommended to the City of Montreal that it undertake the Phase 1 work of the Bonaventure Expressway transformation project that will allow the creation of the Quartier Bonaventure, the creative and prestigious new city gateway that will provide Montreal's first dedicated corridor reserved for public transportation.
