Guy Cormier was 46 years old when he became the youngest president and CEO in Desjardins history in 2016. He started as a teller and climbed his way to the top thanks to his exemplary, inclusive leadership.

A proud promoter of the cooperative model, Cormier puts people first in his decision-making and has rallied Desjardins’ 58,000 employees around a vision of always doing what’s best for members and clients.

Today, Forbes magazine ranks Desjardins as the fourth best employer for women in the world, and it’s because Cormier advocates and embodies the values of equity, parity and diversity.

Concordia awarded Cormier an honorary doctorate in 2022 for his business vision and social conscience.
