Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton celebrated 60 years of history in Matane on June 4, 2017, with a special dinner attended by employees, professionals and current partners to honour founder, Gérard Lavoie, and builders and former partner, Réal Bélanger, Hugues Dion and Jacques Gendron.

Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO, and the Regional Vice-President, spoke about Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s leading position in the Matane region’s business community. Michel Proulx stated, “We stay in the lead thanks to our people, our talent and our founders who opened an accounting firm in Matane in 1957. I’m proud of my fellow partners, René Gauthier, Yves Gauthier, Guy Lemieux and Gino Gosselin, for their professionalism and community involvement.”

“There are four generations of workers in this room, and our greatest strength is that each one brings it own contribution and its own solutions to the challenges it faces,” he added. His words were a reflection of Emilio B. Imbriglio’s speech that described the firm’s new leading-edge services Taxō and Operiō.

A business is only as good as the sum of its talent

During dinner, Mr René Gauthier made a point of recognizing the importance of team work and the quality and dedication of the staff in the Matane office (which also includes Amqui and Sainte-Anne-des-Monts). “It is, first and foremost, thanks to our talent that we have been able to maintain our leading position in the Matane region. We are proud to count on a team of dedicated and loyal professionals, some of whom have been with us for over forty years.”

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton in Matane, the Lower St. Lawrence, the Gaspé and Edmundston

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s history in Matane began in January 1957 with the opening of Caron, Corriveau, Renaud et associés. By 1984, that firm had offices in Montmagny, La Pocatière, Matane, Rivière-du-Loup, Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, Chandler and New Richmond. With lots of plans to expand and in order to meet his clients’ needs, founder Gérald Lavoie negotiated the merger of these seven offices with Raymond Chabot Martin Paré, which would become Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton in 1998.

This signaled the start of new era for the Lower St. Lawrence offices, Matane and their clients. The traditional accounting firm was transformed and businesses could now count on numerous specialists and assurance, tax and advisory services to evolve in a structured, competitive business environment.

Today, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton boasts a network of 14 offices and four service outlets throughout the Lower St. Lawrence, Gaspé and Edmundston region and is part of a large national and international network.
