LÉVIS, QC, Feb. 8, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Chair of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of Desjardins Group Monique F. Leroux has been ranked first in the Top 25 most influential financial personalities in the Quebec financial services industry and named Quebec's Financial Personality of the Year by the publication Finance et Investissement. This recognition attests to the influence, remarkable accomplishments and the growth of Desjardins under Ms. Leroux's leadership.
"I would like to share this honour with all of Desjardins Group's elected officers, managers and employees. Desjardins would not be the cooperative financial group it is today without their support and dedication: a well-capitalized, growing institution with outstanding cooperative and financial performance and a solid presence in Quebec, Ontario, and Western Canada—and now Europe," said Leroux.
The Quebec financial services industry's Top 25 also includes two other Desjardins Group executives. They are Denis Berthiaume, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Wealth Management and Life and Health Insurance, and Christiane Bergevin, Executive Vice-President, Strategic Partnerships.
