Nathalie Le Prohon
MBA Alumna of the Year
Nathalie Le Prohon, MBA 99, has enjoyed a distinguished career and leant her considerable skills to many volunteer organizations.
After Nathalie earned a BComm from McGill University in 1984, she spent the next 19 years with IBM Canada, climbing the rungs to VP, Strategic Outsourcing Sales. While at IBM, Nathalie earned an MBA from Concordia's John Molson School of Business. In 2003, she became president of Nokia Canada in Toronto and occupied that position for two years.
But in 2004, at the age of 42, Nathalie was diagnosed with an advanced and aggressive breast cancer. She went through two years of intensive treatments and is still under hormonal therapy. She has been cancer-free for four years.
This profound experience led Nathalie to refocus her career and life priorities. She now dedicates more of her time to her family and community causes.
Nathalie, her husband and two children recently returned to Montreal after 12 years in Toronto. Today, she serves as corporate director for Hydro-Québec and Bentall LP and was recently appointed to the Audit Committee of the Department of National Defence.
