Richard Rousseau (Vice President, D.L.G.L., Winner since 1999):
(French speaker, translated into English)
We have been planning for succession at D.L.G.L. for over 10 years now. Our president has decided to take semi-retirement. He wanted to try a new approach with us – one not usually seen in this industry. He chose key people from within the organization to form a management committee. For over 10 years now, the management committee has been shaping the company's destiny, and our president attends weekly meetings. I have to say – this works extremely well. I said before that communication is very open, something that supports this kind of management. The succession is there, within the management committee.
