Executive Vice-President — Resource Placement

4 years at ITI Grow Invest Excel

Jean-François has a true flair for business. For him, IT offers excellent growth opportunities, so long as the solutions respond to real needs.

What led you to work in IT?

A series of coincidences! I’m a lawyer by training, and my family has been in business for a long time. Over the years, I developed an entrepreneurial spirit, and today I like to invest in promising companies.

For me, IT is a company’s foundation, and it’s increasingly becoming an essential component for all organizations. In a broader sense, IT is also ubiquitous in society. The trend is only growing, and we can’t ignore it any longer.

So when I got the opportunity to join ITI, I didn’t hesitate. It’s a relevant and enduring company that plays an important role in our society.

What are you passionate about in life?

Above all, my family. Despite having a busy career, my loved ones are always my priority.

I’m also a lover of fine wines and the great outdoors, and I like car racing. I even competed in my younger days.

What motives you to get up and work in the morning?

Growth! Yes, there’s the financial aspect, but I believe that above all, our efforts to surpass ourselves as a company matter most. By improving, by getting better and more successful, ITI is growing sustainably and becoming a Canadian market leader. And that’s truly motivating.

What is your proudest achievement?

I founded a law firm in 1997 that grew from a startup to a company with 23 offices in 14 countries, which today employs hundreds of people. It was the first time in many years that a firm from Quebec was able to expand so broadly.

The passion that led us to achieve that success is something I feel today at ITI. We’re creating quality jobs that provide for families, and we’re also helping other companies grow across the country. I’m very proud to contribute to the success of local businesses.

On that note, where do you see ITI in 2027?

I think ITI is seizing significant opportunities and has the potential to become a key player in IT on a national level. We’ve struck an excellent balance between a well-stocked offer and superior-quality service. By focusing on what makes us stand out, the company will quickly become indispensable.
