SAINTE-MARIE, September 19, 2016 – A celebratory cocktail at Centre Caztel on September 15th was attended by over 100 clients and business partners, who joined Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton employees and partners in marking the 50th anniversary of the firm’s presence in Beauce. This was the fourth of five events to thank clients in each of the firm’s five locations in the region.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s presence in Beauce began with the merger of two independent firms created in 1966 in Saint-Georges and Sainte-Marie. Following a series of mergers, the firm, then called Latulippe Renaud & Associés, decided to open an office in Sainte-Marie in 1981 to better serve the Beauce clientele. The firm then merged with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (Raymond Chabot Martin Paré at the time) in 1986. “This association was both logical and profitable for the two firms as well as their clients, who would benefit from a range of integrated services, a network of specialists and a structure supporting the attainment of the highest standards,” commented Mario Morin, Regional Vice-President.

On June 5th, Claude Cliche, a firm ambassador who is very involved in the Beauce business community, was honoured in Saint-Joseph and his exceptional contribution was recognized once again at this cocktail. Attendees also paid tribute to Rémy Grondin, a 35-year veteran of the firm and Sainte-Marie office employee since its inception, for his work and unfailing commitment. “Our clients can attest to the fact that Claude and Rémy were both instrumental in the development and positioning of the Sainte-Marie office. It’s thanks to such dedicated leaders that we are able to mark 50 years in Beauce and 35 years in Sainte-Marie,” stated Steeve Vachon, Sainte-Marie office partner.

The partners in attendance also thanked the clients who have placed their trust in Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton over these many years and praised the work of the 70 Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton professionals in Beauce, particularly the Sainte-Marie staff, who have played a key role in the firm’s ability to maintain its reputation as a leader in the region.

2016 will be a year of celebration for the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton offices in Beauce, as it is very important for its leaders and employees to highlight the 50 years of history that have allowed our firm to become what it is today in each of the areas we are located. We invite you to consult rcgt.com/50th-beauce, where a new text every month will allow you to delve into Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s history and its Beauce roots as employees, clients, ambassadors and business partners share their memories.
