In October 2019, Guy Vigeant was appointed President of CGI’s Canada operations, leading a team of 11,000 consultants across 19 metro markets. Guy and his team bring CGI’s end-to-end capabilities—including strategic IT and business consulting, systems integration, managed IT and business process services, and intellectual property—to clients across industries through a local proximity model complemented by global delivery capabilities.
Prior to this appointment, Guy was responsible for CGI’s Mergers and Acquisitions worldwide. During his three-year tenure in this role, CGI closed 12 strategic mergers that offer clients expanded scale and expertise, and incoming consultants new career opportunities.
Prior to October 2016, Guy served as Business Unit Leader of CGI’s Greater Montreal (GM) operations for more than four years. The business unit is composed of nearly 3,000 consultants, providing services for local, national and international clients. Under his leadership, GM booked more than $2 billion in contracts over four years and achieved a 200% book-to-bill ratio in FY2016. During this time, numerous prestigious clients signed and renewed contracts across various industries, and the GM team improved client satisfaction to a record high.
During his four years as Business Unit Leader, Guy and his team also oversaw the opening of a new Center of Excellence in Shawinigan to complement GM’s other centers located in Montréal, Saguenay and Sherbrooke. These centers, which continue to expand to other locations, enable GM to deliver nearshore and offshore services to many clients across North America and Europe. In addition, Guy and his team continuously improved operational excellence by enhancing project and contract management processes.
Before his appointment as GM Business Unit Leader, Guy was responsible for managing GM’s financial sector (2011-2012), commercial sector (2007-2011) and public sector (2004-2007) business. He started his career at CGI as a consultant and has 28 years of experience with the firm.
Guy graduated in 1986 from Polytechnique Montréal as an electrical engineer.
