Headshot of Guy Cormier

For his business vision and social conscience

Guy Cormier has been president and CEO of Desjardins Group since 2016. He has worked for the cooperative for 30 years, becoming a caisse general manager in 2002, vice-president of finance in 2009 and joining Desjardins Group's senior management team in 2012.

Since being elected president, Cormier has worked hard to instill a strong member- and client-focused culture that resonates with all of Desjardins's employees and directors. On top of creating the $250million GoodSpark Fund, he's also helped the organization grow and become a household name across the country.

As a champion of the cooperative model, shared prosperity, youth and a greener, more inclusive economy, Cormier makes decisions that are based on the common good. 

He is a graduate of HEC Montréal, where he earned both an undergraduate degree in business administration and an MBA. He also taught finance there for close to a decade. He currently sits on several boards and has been named a chevalier of France’s Legion of Honour.
