After working 30 years as a freelancing consultant, Yves Bérubé, a 2019 McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA alumnus, took the plunge and joined the Mutuelle des municipalités du Québec (MMQ) as Director of Technology.
“It was my main objective when completing the McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA program. I wanted to develop my managerial side and move away from the technical. The program is recognized in the market. Organizations that recruit top-level executives know they can trust a McGill-HEC Montréal EMBA graduate. The learnings from the EMBA program will definitely be useful at different times in setting up and implementing business and technology strategies.”
In his new role, Yves will be part of the executive team of the insurance company serving Quebec’s municipalities. He will be in charge of developing and managing the firm’s overall technology strategy. He will work closely with other senior management and provide vision and leadership in all aspects of technology management and operations. He will set the firm’s overall technology standards and practices, business continuity plan, help accelerate MMQ’s digital and data strategy, manage the implementation of data systems and monitoring their effectiveness and make recommendations and explain technology solutions to senior management.
