On November 18, 2014, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton President and CEO, Emilio B. Imbriglio, had the privilege to serve as interviewer at a Manufacturiers et exportateurs du Québec breakfast meeting.
The exchange with Coalision President and CEO, Bernard Mariette, before an audience of about 100 people, showcased the vision of a great builder about his organization, which distributes, among others, the Lolë and Paradox brands internationally. One of this dynamic business’s core values is “doing business while doing good.” Mr. Mariette discussed the vision, issues and challenges facing this Longueuil-based company with passion and enthusiasm.
This highly successful event set the perfect stage for an inspirational and influential entrepreneur!
