Trois-Rivières, February 21, 2013 – During the strategic planning that resulted in the adoption of On Course for 2020 by the Board of Directors of the Trois-Rivières Port Authority (TRPA), it was determined that the railway network was strategic for the growth of the port. Railway service is a crucial part of an intermodal transportation system. In order to ensure optimum performance, it is essential to coordinate all of the stakeholder’s actions in the client’s best interest.
The year 2020 begins with a wind of change at the St. Lawrence Economic Development Council (SODES). In addition to welcoming its new President-CEO late last year, SODES now has a new Director of Public Affairs and has reviewed the duties of its in-house staff.
The organization’s new President, Mathieu St-Pierre, will be supported by Director of Public Affairs Josiane Marmet. With 10 years’ experience in the fields of communications and public relations, Josiane has joined the SODES team to put her strategic vision of the issues and fresh perspective for positioning SODES and its activities to good use to heighten the visibility of the industry and its members.
SODES is also pleased to entrust Marie-Pier Racine with new duties. After more than 5 years on the team, Marie-Pier is now Coordinator of Finance and Administration. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight her wealth of knowledge of the maritime industry and her professional rigour, both of which make her a vital resource.
Wishing one and all an excellent start to the year!
