Gerard Geoffrion new chair of CIMA+

MONTREAL — Canadian engineering consulting firm CIMA+ has announced the appointment of Gerard Geoffrion as chairman of the board.

Geoffrion, a current director of the company, succeeds Real Plourde, who served as chairman since 2019.

The change was ratified at a special meeting of the board of directors held in late July, stated a release. It was also confirmed that Denis Thivierge would immediately take up duties as president and CEO of the company.

Geoffrion has been a member of the CIMA+ board of directors since 2015. During that time, he served as chairman of the audit committee. For nearly 20 years, he guided Van Houtte as executive vice-president and later as president.

Earlier in his career, he worked as an industrial engineer for six years and, after obtaining his MBA, worked in strategic planning, finance, corporate acquisitions and sales for a dozen years.

Geoffrion stated that he is honoured to succeed Plourde.

“Real Plourde is a visionary. Under his leadership, our governance has stood out for its transparency, the integration of independent members and the rigour of its interventions. By successfully combining these elements, we implemented a bold growth plan that has made CIMA+ one of the most prominent companies in its sector.

“In my new role, I will continue in this same direction, guided by these same values.”
