Isabel Dansereau becomes Executive Director of the Old Port of Montreal Corporation
Last week, the Old Port of Montreal Corporation announced the appointment of its new Executive Director; Isabel Dansereau. Isabel is a current participant in the McGill-HEC Montréal Executive MBA program.
In her new role, Isabel will manage a 2.5 km recreational and tourism site that welcomes more than 7 million visitors a year and is at the very beginning of a major revitalization process. One of her main challenges over the coming months will be to implement a common vision for the two business units of the Corporation – the Old Port site and the Montréal Science Center – in a rapidly changing organization.
“This is an amazing opportunity. Thanks to the conceptual framework developed through the various modules of the EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal program and the rich exchanges with my peers in the cohort, I feel perfectly ready to take up this challenge. More specifically, the notions I saw during the Collaborative Mindset module helped me acquire tools that will be very useful for me in unlocking the immense potential of the teams now under my responsibility. “
