President and CEO, Société de développement Angus
As the initiator and guiding light of the Angus revitalization project, he has turned the SDA into a spearhead for urban revitalization. A man of real commitment, he is driven by a great desire to give life and zest back to East Montreal, a long-neglected sector of the city. With his outstanding skills for oratory and leadership, he manages numerous projects at once and inspires organizations and institutions to invest and work together. The SDA’s accomplishments (at Technopôle Angus, on Saint-Laurent Boulevard, and elsewhere) reflect this commitment and willingness to take risks. In 2012, Christian was honoured with the Green CEO Award and the Medal of the National Assembly.
