Luc Lacombe, Tax Partner at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, commented on the economic and financial update of the Quebec Government, which is staying the course to a balanced budget for 2015-2016. Despite this context of austerity, Mr. Lacombe insisted that Quebec must seek to create wealth and jobs nonetheless, because the current economic environment really needs this. Mr. Lacombe’s observations were echoed with host Paul Houde of 98.5 FM on his December 2 show (listen starting at 2 min. 59 sec.) and Le Journal de Québec in an article dated December 3 (text also published on various Quebecor platforms).

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!
