Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to announce the appointment of Richard Chrétien, Assurance Partner, as Regional Vice-President, Bas-Saint-Laurent, Gaspésie and French-speaking New Brunswick.
Richard was elected by acclamation in accordance with the electoral process approved at the Partnership Board and took up his new position on May 1, 2018.
Richard began his career as an auditor at the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Matane office in 1989. He was appointed partner in 1998 and has been the Managing Partner of the Gaspé office for the past 20 years and the Chandler office for 6 years. He is a member of the Regional Management Committee and Executive Committee and served on the Regional Business Development Committee from 2016-2018 and the Regional Advisory Committee from 2010-2013.
He has led numerous major assurance engagements and provided business advisory services to a diversified clientele. In connection with his new duties, Richard will be transferring certain roles and responsibilities but will continue his involvement with clients. We wish him the very best and are convinced he will take up this new challenge with great success.
Michel Proulx served as Vice-President since 2007 and during his term was an invaluable contributor to the Executive Committee and the firm’s outreach. We would like to thank him for his dedication and have no doubt that it will be a pleasure for him to get back to serving his clients in Montmagny.
