Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to announce that Véronique Denys, M. Fisc., Lawyer, Tax Director at the Québec City office, was the recipient of an award at the Quebec City YWCA’s 14th Femmes de mérite 2012 benefit on May 24, 2012. Winner in the Sports category, Véronique beat out Catherine Roberge, a Judo athlete, and Marianne St-Gelais, member of the women’s national short-track speed skating team.

Extraordinary Feat, Unique Woman

You will recall that by reaching the summit of Vinson Massif in Antarctica on November 26, 2011, Véronique became the first Quebec woman to reach the top of the highest summit on every continent, an international challenge that is the ultimate goal of the world’s greatest mountaineers. Such a feat has been accomplished by 300 people worldwide, including 21 women. Since then, Véronique has been giving conferences on a regular basis, inviting people to persevere and surpass themselves.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to count on Véronique’s commitment. She has contributed to the distinct positioning of the Firm and its professionals. Her extraordinary determination is a source of inspiration to all partners and employees.

Close to 150 Women Honoured Since 1999

The goal of the Québec City YWCA women of merit awards is to introduce to the public women from all walks of life from across Québec whose accomplishments contribute to society’s progress. With this recognition, these women become models for our youth and inspire them to surpass themselves. Since 1999, the Québec City YWCA has honoured 146 exceptional women.
Congratulations to Véronique Denys for this well-deserved award!
