Congratulations to Véronique Denys, Taxation Manager, Québec City office, on having realized her dream and reached the summit of Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world. This makes Véronique the third Quebecer to have successfully completed this expedition!

But it doesn’t stop there—by having scaled to the top of Everest, Véronique is working on accomplishing an even greater feat: successfully completing the “7 summits” challenge, which consists in climbing to the top of the seven highest peaks of each continent on the globe—an international challenge coveted by the greatest mountaineers in the world. Véronique has reached the top of her fifth summit out of seven, and if she manages to scale the other two (Vinson in Antarctica and the Carstenz pyramid in Oceania), she will become the first Quebecer ever to have made it to the top of all seven!

“Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to have sponsored Véronique and to have contributed to the success and realization of her dream. She is an inspiration to all of our personnel throughout the network. This is also an excellent example of the benefits of our work/personal life balance policy,” said Jean Robillard, President and CEO.

Pierre Lapointe, Vice-President of the Québec City/Chaudière-Appalaches/Mauricie region stated, “This is our success as well, and I would like to thank all the Partners, professionals and employees in the region who supported and encouraged Véronique to follow her dream. I would also like to thank our clients and business partners who supported Véronique in this project. We can hardly wait for her return and hear the tale of her tantalizing adventure.” Hats off to you Véronique!
