Montreal Port Authority President and Chief Executive Officer Sylvie Vachon has won a Mercure in the Mercuriades competition organized annually by the Quebec Federation of Chambers of Commerce. She was honoured April 19, 2018, with the Sun Life Financial Outstanding Woman in Leadership Award. The Mercure recognizes the exceptional career of a businesswoman who has exercised daring leadership with positive impact throughout her career, while extending the reach of her business sector.

The business community recognized Sylvie Vachon’s contribution to her sector as a unifying leader who fosters synergy.
