After more than 20 years with Quebecor and Videotron, Mr. Pruneau has decided to leave active professional life and devote himself to personal investment projects.
I heartily thank Jean-François for his dedication to the company over the years. With his strong leadership and business acumen, he has made a vital contribution to the development of our business plan and the solidity of our company. I wish him every success in this new chapter of his life.
I am turning a page in my professional life with a sense of accomplishment. I am leaving the organization in a good position and with a first-class team to count on as it continues its progress. I thank Pierre Karl for placing his trust in me over the years. It has been a true privilege to lead Videotron.
