Finance et Investissement has unveiled its Top 25 most prominent people in Quebec’s financial services sector and, for a second consecutive year, SSQ Insurance CEO Jean-François Chalifoux is one of the five finalists in the insurance category.

“I humbly accept this prestigious nomination,” said Chalifoux. “Making the list alongside some of the industry’s most committed leaders makes me proud, and I owe it in large part to my colleagues and SSQ Insurance employees.”

Chalifoux is relying on innovative and ambitious leadership to build a company adapted to the realities of today and geared toward the needs of tomorrow. In the last year, with Chalifoux at its helm, SSQ Insurance has seen a new organizational structure, a corporate merger, the implementation of a far-reaching strategic plan and the launch of a dramatic cultural change project that is rallying employees while delivering a solid financial performance.
