New Executives For Ubisoft Montreal’s Management Team
Ubisoft is pleased to announce the appointments of Catherine Lemyre and Leslie Quinton as Vice-President of Talent and Vice-President of Communications at its Montreal studio. These two new positions are part of a larger plan announced last July, when Ubisoft committed to overhauling the studio’s management structure to support the company’s overall growth strategy and instill a more diversified vision.
“We’re privileged to add to our ranks two talented and highly respected leaders in their respective fields to bring their perspectives to support the company’s development vision and to ensure a more inclusive future for Ubisoft Montreal. With the arrival of Catherine and Leslie, we have strong new voices to complement the direction of our organization and the goals we’ve set for our studio”, stated Christophe Derennes, Managing Director at Ubisoft Montreal.
As Vice-President of Talent, Catherine Lemyre’s mandate is to put tools in place to build a talent management vision consistent with the studio’s strategic direction and decisions, as well as to drive an action plan that will encourage employee development and improve satisfaction, revitalize organizational health, and optimize the studio’s performance and future.
New Vice-President of Communications Leslie Quinton has been mandated to build internal and external communications strategies that guide and drive the studio’s culture, corporate social responsibility, employer brand, and strategic communications for the organization.
Founded in 1997, Ubisoft Montreal has become a pioneer in Quebec’s video game ecosystem, contributing to the province’s reputation as an international centre of excellence.
