Congratulations to Réal Létourneau, Partner and Regional Vice-President for over 15 years, who was recently named Ambassador by the Université de Sherbrooke and received a Mérite estrien award from La Tribune.
An Ambassador Who Played an Active Role in Regional Development
The 20th edition of the Gala du rayonnement de l’Université de Sherbrooke recently paid tribute to a number of alumni members who have paved a path of excellence for future generations. Réal Létourneau was named Ambassador of the Management Faculty. The University stated that, in addition to an illustrious career at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, this former Chairman of the Sherbrooke chamber of commerce in the late 1980s played a pivotal role in the region’s development and growth. He has inspired harmony, leadership, confidence and innovation in everything he does.
A Sherbrooke Native Who Gives Back to His Region
In addition to his alma mater’s recognition, Réal also received an award from the daily newspaper La Tribune. Each week, La Tribune awards a Mérite Estrien. At a special event in February 2016, fifty individuals will be recognized for their ongoing commitment and dedication to their community, out of sheer uninterested passion and with little regard for the hours spent. Our partner was honoured for his tremendous contribution to the Eastern Townships’ development.
To learn more about Réal Létourneau and his life, read the excellent article (in French) “La réussite en trois volets” published in the October 13th edition of La Tribune.
Kudos to Réal Létourneau for these two prestigious awards and for an outstanding career that reflects so well on Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, the Université de Sherbrooke and the entire Eastern Township community!
