The annual competition for the Quebec Business Women’s award values the excellence of women in their respective fields and contributes to their success.

Mrs. Rémy holds a master’s degree in microbiology and immunology as well as a master’s degree in business administration from Montreal’s HEC. She worked at Sainte-Justine Hospital for 11 years and at the Red Cross for 7 years. She was part of the team that created Héma-Québec ten years ago, and has devoted herself to the organization since. Suzanne Rémy is a consummate professional whose expertise and know-how are recognized throughout Quebec and Canada, particularly in her role as an industry representative for the CSA.

«Suzanne Rémy is a talented administrator who played a key role in the creation of Héma-Québec. In record time, she developed and implemented recognized quality standards and helped make this organization an international model with respect to safety issues. Suzanne’s daily focus is on quality and she always aims to improve the organization’s standards. Her thoroughness, perseverance and motivation are greatly appreciated by everyone at Héma-Québec », said Francine Décary, President and Chief Executive Officer of Héma-Québec.
