Some 25 years ago, François Ducharme founded Ducharme Perron back in 1996 and became affiliated with Hill & Knowlton Canada in 1999. François has decided to step down and move over to the client-side of the business, but will be leaving the office in the hands of Simon Poitras, Josiane Hébert and Daniel Matte to run.
Simon Poitras, currently Vice-President in the Quebec City office, will become General Manager and continue the work accomplished by François.
Josiane Hébert will become Vice-President, Public Affairs, Quebec.
Currently General Manager of the HKDP office in Montreal, Daniel Matte will now become responsible for both HKDP offices in Quebec and, as such, has been promoted to the position of Senior Vice-President.
