This November 7, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s offices in the Bas-Saint-Laurent, Gaspésie and Edmundston region celebrated the 30th anniversary of their merger with the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton network. A hundred people got together that evening, a unique opportunity for partners, ex-partners and employees to discuss the highlights of this 30-year history. The future could also be discussed, because the President and CEO, Emilio B. Imbriglio, was present to mark this milestone and congratulate the employees and partners on their contribution to the region’s economic and social development.
The short history of a big firm
Already well established since 1948, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, decided in 1984 to ensure its presence in Bas-Saint-Laurent and Gaspésie. On May 13, 1983, in Rivière-du-Loup, official merger discussions began with Corriveau, Bujold, Lavoie, Madore & Associés, comptables agréés, with offices located in Rivière-du-Loup, Chandler, La Pocatière, Matane, Montmagny, New Richmond and Sainte-Anne-des-Monts. At the time, the firm included 18 partners, 118 employees and 7 offices. The merger became a reality on November 17, 1984. The firm thus made a major breakthrough in the entire Bas-Saint-Laurent-Gaspésie territory, achieving a real expansion.
At the heart of the region’s socioeconomic activity since 1984
Serving businesses, as well as public and parapublic bodies of Bas-Saint-Laurent, Gaspésie and Edmundston, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is positioned at the heart of the region’s socioeconomic activity. Today, the firm benefits from enviable name recognition in the region, with over 22 partners and 240 people spread among 16 offices. Congratulations!
