As you know, our Vice-Chair and Executive Committee member, Kathy Nakashima, has been acting as Interim President during our search for a new Foundation president. I am happy to announce that the search is over. Starting October 16, Renée Vézina will be the President of the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Renée brings 30 years of experience as a real estate executive. The winner of multiple awards, she has been named one of the top 8 most influential women in real estate and has also been recognized for mentoring young women in Quebec’s business sector.
Renée’s devotion to helping children goes back over 15 years. She was the founding president of the Montreal Real Estate Foundation for Kids, which has raised over $4 million and helped over 25,000 children in need, including those with physical or mental disabilities. She received the Pro Bono award from the Quebec Chapter of the Canadian Bar Association for outstanding contributions to the community.
We are thrilled to have Renée on board and are confident that she and our strong management team will continue to accomplish outstanding things for the Hospital and its young patients.
Chairman of the MCHF Board of Directors
