Good day to you all.

I will be leaving CEIM as of today, after more than 24 years of service, 15 of which as President and COO of the organization. I am proud of what we have accomplished.

I wish to thank Ms. Hélène Desmarais for giving me the opportunity to join CEIM and for her confidence and support over the years.

I also want to thank all current and former members of our Board of Directors for their wise counsel and encouragement, as well as my current and retired colleagues for their precious collaboration: nothing would have been possible without them.

Thank you also to all CEIM’s partners, in particular the Governments of Canada and Québec, for their financial support.

Finally, I would like to extend my thanks to our clients, some of whom I have had the pleasure of knowing on a more personal basis: you are the raison d’être of our organization.

Goodbye and all the best to you all!

Serge Bourassa
