Board Member at Canadian Federation of Independent Business
Robert was born and raised in Montreal, where he also first worked in employment placement services—more than 40 years ago. In 1976, he was hired by a recruitment firm that was starting up its Montreal operations. Robert acquired the business in 1996 and renamed it Excel Personnel Inc. The firm now has five branches and more than 40 staff. Those staff have access to “mini-gyms” at the office—a testament to Robert’s enthusiasm for fitness. Robert’s success caught the attention of La Presse, which recognized his leadership in 2014. Robert has four children and also has seven grandchildren. He is devoted to his work and his family, and takes part in all their activities.
