SSQ Insurance board director Sylvain Picard receives a Hermès award for his exceptional career

SSQ Insurance is pleased to highlight the important recognition bestowed upon Sylvain Picard by Université Laval's faculty of administrative sciences. On the occasion of the 39th edition of the Prix Hermès held on last May 2, Sylvain Picard received the Prix Hermès de carrière, the event’s most prestigious award.

Sylvain Picard has had a seat on SSQ Insurance’s boards of directors since February 2004.

His in-depth knowledge of the insurance field and fringe benefits combined with his experience as an administrator make him a valuable asset for the company. Picard is a Université Laval graduate and General Manager of the Native Benefits Plan (NBP).

“On behalf of the company’s boards of directors and the entire SSQ Insurance team, I want to warmly and enthusiastically congratulate Sylvain for this tribute from his Alma Mater.
