Gaëtan Gagné, president and CEO of Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB), has announced to the Board of Directors that he will not be renewing his term. He will remain in office through a transition period that will end with his successor assuming the reins.

“In 2016, the Board of Directors asked me to renew my term until the completion of the largest expansion project in our history,” said Gagné. “Our major projects have been completed, our financial health has never been better and the number of passengers has been growing steadily for the past 17 years. I feel good about this transition. I am facing it with a sense of pride and thankfulness for YQB’s staff and Board of Directors, who have always supported me in the organization’s development.”

YQB’s governance committee intends to start the nomination process next month, with the new President and CEO taking office in the spring or summer of 2019.
