“On behalf of Bird’s board of directors, management, employees and stakeholders, I extend our deepest gratitude to Mr. Charette for his invaluable contributions and unwavering commitment to the company. With an exceptional tenure spanning over 47 years, his legacy will endure through the generations of individuals he inspired in the construction industry,” stated Paul Raboud, chair of the board of directors, in a statement.
