The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) has announced that its President and CEO, Martin Imbleau, will step down in September to pursue a new opportunity.
Nathalie Pilon, Chair of the APM Board of Directors, said: “I would like to thank Martin for his vision, creativity and ability to unite our partners around common objectives, as demonstrated by the ambitious 2023–2027 APM strategic plan, which was developed in collaboration with all our stakeholders.
“Under his leadership, the Port of Montreal has faced the impact of the pandemic, the Contrecoeur expansion project has reached key milestones towards its realisation, and a clear shift towards decarbonisation of the port ecosystem has been undertaken.
“On behalf of the members of the Board of Directors, I wish Martin success in his new endeavour. The strong management team in place can count on our full support and collaboration in pursuing the objectives set out in the new strategic plan.”
Martin Imbleau stated: “I am extremely grateful for the trust placed in me by the Board of Directors and the APM team, made up of committed, competent people dedicated to operating the present and building the future of the Port of Montreal.
“I have learned a great deal from the APM team, stakeholders in the maritime and port ecosystems, and representatives of the communities in which the port operates.
“I am very proud to have worked with them in developing the Port of Montreal’s new strategic plan, which will make it an even more sustainable and resilient public service.”
Imbleau is scheduled to leave on 8 September 2023. The Board of Directors is already working to guarantee a smooth transfer and speedy filling of the post.
