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. The four centers 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.
