Quebec-based Lassonde Industries has announced that Éric Gemme will step into the role of chief financial officer on April 1. The appointment is what the company describes as a “long-prepared transition plan” as Gemme replaces Guy Blanchette, current executive vice-president and chief financial officer, who is retiring at the end of March after 14 years at the company.
Gemme, who joined the company in 2014, is currently senior vice-president and chief financial officer of the Lassonde Pappas and Company Inc. division.
Post-retirement, Blanchette will continue his relationship with Lassonde serving as a strategic advisor to its CEO Nathalie Lassonde.
