SOVAR Welcomes New Members to its Board of Directors

Dr. Peter Morand, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Gestion SOVAR Inc., is pleased to announce the appointment of several new directors. Bringing a wealth of experience in academic research, healthcare and business & entrepreneurship, these new members will complement and strengthen SOVAR’s governance team.

“The appointment of new directors and the recent hiring of a new President and CEO will allow SOVAR to review its strategic directions and look to the future of the organization with fresh eyes,” said Peter Morand. “Next, as I will soon be retiring from the SOVAR’s Board, identifying my successor as Chair will complete the renewal of the governance team,” added Mr. Morand.

“I am very pleased to count on a group of seasoned directors with complementary backgrounds. Their contribution and commitment will be major assets for the development of SOVAR,” said Paule De Blois, President and CEO.
