The 18th Soirée des Sommets, organized by the Robert-Cliche RCM’s Centre local de développement (Beauce Region), was held on October 26, 2016 at the Hôtel Nationale in Tring-Jonction. During the event, eight Sommet awards were remitted to businesses or entrepreneurs in the RCM that have been highly visible in the past two years and have contributed to the region’s sense of community. Claude Cliche, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Advisory Partner, was awarded the prestigious Sommet Enracinement award in honour of his 45 years of commitment to the region’s economic and social development.

An exceptional career
A pillar of our organization in Beauce, Claude began his career with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (Latulippe, Cliche, Bourque, Gilbert et Associés at the time) in 1971. Recognized for his professionalism and personal touch, he advised a loyal and diversified clientele for many years.
Claude made a name for himself in the region, not only through his quality relationships with his business partners, but also through his community involvement, as a board member for economic and community organizations, among others. A true mentor, he always considered it his duty to share his knowledge and passion with his colleagues. It was only natural then that Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton appointed him as a firm ambassador for the 50th anniversary of the firm’s presence in Beauce.
Claude’s outstanding contribution was further recognized earlier this year when he received the Quebec Lieutenant Governor’s Medal for his volunteering¾another well-earned award for this exemplary member of the Saint-Joseph community.

Our firm had the privilege of being the official partner of this year’s event that showcased some of our core values: boldness, vision and persistence. “We’ve been involved with this special event since its inception, however, this year, we were honoured to take on this prestigious role. Events such as the Soirée des Sommets contribute to the region’s economic growth, something that is very important to Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. Seeing one of the firm’s pioneers and ambassadors receive such an honour is particularly fitting within the celebrations marking our 50 years in the region,” stated Rémi Fortin, Partner in Charge of the Beauce offices.
