On November 29, 2017, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton celebrated 40 years of history in Chandler with a festive cocktail.

The office shares this pride with clients and business partners, who have placed their trust in this office over the years and who continue, to this day, to motivate close to fifteen professionals to excel. About 120 clients, business partners and employees attended the cocktail, contributing to a very festive ambiance.

Richard Chrétien, Partner in charge of the Chandler office, said “We also owe this pride to its founder, Pierre Georges, who, through his entrepreneurship, marked the history of our firm and that of local businesses by choosing to join up with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton.”

In the 40-year foothold in the RCM of Rocher-Percé, the partners and employees at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton are proud to affirm that they have supported thousands of clients and dozens of local organizations in job creation, innovation development and local business’s growth and competitiveness.

Michel Gagné, Senior Manager at the Chandler office, added, “If our firm’s presence is so strong in the RCM of Rocher-Percé, Gaspé, Lower St. Lawrence and French-speaking New Brunswick regions, where you’ll find 14 of our offices, it’s thanks to our invaluable clients and business partners. They are our raison d’être, just like all of our colleagues who, each day, leverage their expertise and professionalism for the communities and their various players. We are proud to have been guiding our clients in their successes for the past 40 years and we trust we’ll remain a business partner of choice in their successes for many years to come.”
