On Thursday, December 6, 2018, more than 150 people got together in Saguenay to listen to testimonials on entrepreneurial succession.

The panel, comprising two transferees and two transferors, was hosted by our firm’s Éric Dufour, Regional Vice-President and Entrepreneurial Succession leader.

Valérie Gilbert of Groupe Fernand Gilbert, Denis Gagnon of Évasion Sport, Marc Grenon of Aménagement Grenon, and Catherine Verreault of IGA Verreault, spoke of the inter-generational challenges of a family succession. They generously shared their experiences and advice with an attentive crowd.

Organized by the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie Saguenay-Le Fjord, the event gathered business people for the traditional Christmas brunch. It was also an opportunity to launch the regional cell of the Groupe la relève, famille en affaires!

Our firm is one of the business partners of this group, which is the only exclusive family entrepreneurial succession organization. The fifteen or so members who will make up the Saguenay cell will be able to share their challenges and projects in a private setting.
