Montréal, October 13, 2021 – Bâtirente recently announced the appointment of Éric Filion as CEO and is now proud to unveil the composition of its new management committee. Marie-Claude Baker Prud’homme has been named Director, Finances, Governance and Risks. Vickie Lavoie takes on the role of Chief Operating Officer. The position of Director, Group Development remains to be filled.
As a proud example of gender parity, this new management committee will help the organization pursue its development and its mission to become the preferred partner of CSN unions for the financial well-being of their members. “Bâtirente is a human organization, one that is solid and responsible. I’m convinced that this new management committee will enable us to continue helping our members succeed in their retirement,” stated Éric Filion.
Marie-Claude Baker Prud’homme holds a master’s degree in Financial Mathematics and a bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Science from Université du Québec à Montréal. She joined Bâtirente at the beginning of 2021 as Senior Advisor – Corporate Affairs, Risks and Compliance. Prior to that, she worked for a major Québec retirement system for over seven years and was a mathematics lecturer for more than four years.
Vickie Lavoie holds a bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Science from Université Laval and is a Fellow of both the Canadian Institute of Actuaries and the Society of Actuaries. She also holds an MBA from HEC Montréal. Since 2019, she has served as Bâtirente’s Director, Development Strategies. She joined Bâtirente in 2015 as a Group Annuity Plans Advisor. Previously, she spent more than six years working for a large actuarial consulting firm.
We should reiterate that Daniel Simard recently retired after more than 25 years in senior management, although he retains the role of Strategic Advisor to ensure a smooth and harmonious transition.
Bâtirente is a group retirement system created in 1987 at the initiative of the CSN. It allows 24,000 workers, grouped in 300 labour unions, to benefit from pension plans tailored to their needs by pooling their savings.
A pioneer in responsible investing in Quebec, Bâtirente believes that actively managing its investee companies’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks helps ensure long-term economic and social development, as well as sound capitalization of the pension plan, which are both required for sustainable financial performance.
