With a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from McGill University with minors in Entrepreneurship and MIS, Nicole worked in various positions at LOGISTEC since 1991. She started working in the cargo handling business on the docks of Québec and Pointe-au-Pic (QC), and was then named Project Manager in 1995 after having completed an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business. As Project Manager, she analyzed and developed commercial and acquisition projects, as well as improved and implemented administrative tools for operations, accounting, billing and costing.
Nicole moved into in the Information Systems department in 2000 as Director, Information Systems and evolved to the role of Vice-President, Information Systems, position she occupied until 2020. Throughout those years, she led LOGISTEC’s technology portfolio. She has a solid vision, coupled with a diverse set of abilities — a combination of entrepreneurship, process design and operational excellence. She was instrumental in promoting application development, digital innovation and operating performance reporting at LOGISTEC. Under her supervision, LOGISTEC has developed customer-oriented inventory tracking tools and web applications encompassing all of LOGISTEC’s operations.
In addition to her responsibilities in IT, in 2004, Nicole created and managed LOGISTEC’s team in charge of the implementation of internal controls over financial reporting after Bill 198 was enacted. The governance and structure over internal controls continue to be in place today.
