Ginette Mailhot appointed President of the Board of Directors of Anges Québec
Ginette Mailhot is a real believer in supporting the development of the business community, and it shows in the moves she’s made since graduating from the EMBA McGill-HEC Montreal in 2014. She sold the insurance firm, la turquoise, of which she was CEO; she founded Capital Humain Plus, a consulting firm; she’s been appointed president of the board of the Economic Development Coporation of the Regional Municipality of Joliette (CDÉJ) and she joined Anges Québec. The success she’s having on this new path was underlined recently: she was named Chair of the Board of Directors of Anges Québec.
As president of the board of directors of Anges Québec, she will contribute to the growth and the evolution of this network of 200 investor-members who invest in the diverse projects built by Québec’s entrepreneurs. The ‘angels’, Anges Québec’s members, are experienced entrepreneurs and professionals. They contribute to the start-up and growth of new businesses in many ways: as coaches, board members, promoters or through collaboration on business strategies.
Ginette reflects on how the EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal has contributed to her development:
“This program brought me a lot, even though I was already CEO of my company. The EMBA increased my self-confidence and gave me a different perception of myself as a manager and leader, which in turn enabled me to improve myself.
I am a person who ‘goes for it’. I follow my instincts. The EMBA has given me the tools to develop my vision and my ideas more formally, in order to make them understand and accepted, which is very important on a board of directors.
The EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal program and the reputation of the two universities have helped me increase my credibility within the various companies and Boards of Directors in which I am involved ”
