Harold Dubé, president and founder of Acces Location+, has decided to retire, officially selling his shares on July 25 to Luc Bertrand, vice president, and other shareholders: Fonds régionaux de solidarité FTQ and Yvan Blais.

Dubé will continue to work alongside Bertrand, now taking over as president, as a mentor to ensure a smooth transition until the end of 2018. In the new year he will continue, as needed, as an advisor to Bertrand.

“Luc has been employed at Accès Location+ since 2006,” said Dubé. “After only five years of service, he became my business partner. His knowledge, experience in the industry, and his leadership will enable the continuing and successful growth of the company.”

“Mr. Dubé is a visionary who patiently built a company appreciated for the quality of its service and equipment,” said Bertrand. “Known for his human qualities, his listening ear, and incomparable generosity, he is highly esteemed by all. Harold’s life and work have left a mark on Accès Location+.”
