“Leading the association as we come out of the pandemic will certainly present some challenges and opportunities, my objective is to bring us closer and make us stronger,” said Michel Riverin, director of operations at Guay Inc.

Riverin, a 33-year veteran at Guay Inc., will succeed Gijs (Gus) Verdeijen, vice president of Mammoet Canada, who has served on the board for six years. “We are grateful for Gijs’s leadership and commitment to our board,” said Riverin. Verdeijen will remain active as ex-officio member, as he assumes the position of past chair.
