LAVAL, QC, Sept. 16, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - It is with great enthusiasm that Jean-Pierre Léger, Chairman of the Board and CEO of St-Hubert Group, announces the nomination of Pierre Rivard to the position of President and General Director of the company. St-Hubert Group has some 10,000 employees working mainly in Quebec, as well as in Ontario and New Brunswick — respectively in its restaurants and food divisions. Reporting to Jean-Pierre Léger, Pierre Rivard will have direct oversight of the Executive team of the St-Hubert Group's management committee as well as the Presidents of the two divisions.
With more than thirty years of experience in the food industry, including twenty years as president of various companies, Mr. Rivard is renowned and respected within the Retail industry for his focus and rigour. Since he joined St-Hubert Group as President of its food division, he distinguished himself by his leadership as well as his philosophy focused on service, quality, talent and results. Under his direction, St-Hubert Retail enjoyed significant growth, which positioned St-Hubert as a leader on the Québec retail market, but also opened the doors to markets outside Québec.
Following a rigorous selection process carried out by a special committee, "we are convinced that, in Pierre Rivard, we have found a leader who is a 'natural fit' with our cultural values and who will mobilize our talented people to new heights. I have no doubt that, supported by the effective teams currently in place, Pierre will lead the company brilliantly and ensure its future", said Jean-Pierre Léger, CEO and Chairman of the Board of St-Hubert Group.
Pierre Rivard had this to say: "I am very proud to assume the direction of St-Hubert Group, after close to 3 years at the helm of its retail division. St-Hubert is a remarkable company that I love and admire. I am committed to bringing all of my energy to bear on ensuring the company's development and growth, while pursuing St-Hubert's mission to bring happiness to its clients as well as promote the social causes supported by the St-Hubert Foundation. I wish to thank Jean-Pierre for giving me this great opportunity to pursue my career with the Group and continue to oversee its growth.
Pierre Rivard will officially assume his new position on September 28, 2015.
