The board of directors and the management committee of ADM would like to thank Legault for his many years as chair, during which he championed many major files with discipline and skill.

“Mr. Legault assumed the helm of the organization at a pivotal time in the development of ADM,” said Philippe Rainville, president and chief executive officer of ADM. “Among others, he steered the board through the decision-making and governance process for one of the largest private infrastructure projects in Québec: the cityside development program, a project valued at $2.5 billion. Ms. Laberge is taking over at a key moment for the organization. With her recognized know-how and expertise, particularly in project management and governance, she will be just the person we need to enable ADM to carry out its major upcoming projects.”

Well known in the academic world for her proficiency in project management, the new board chair, Laberge, is professor emeritus at the School of Management Studies at Université du Québec à Montréal. During her career, Laberge has served as interim rector, vice-rector (academic life) and executive vice-rector, and vice-rector of teaching, research and creation at Université du Québec à Montréal.
