The body that represents real estate brokers in Quebec has appointed a new leader.

Julie Saucier has joined the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers (QPAREB) as president and chief executive officer. She brings her 20 years of leadership experience in the insurance industry to the role, including roles at Travelers Canada, Blue Cross and TD Insurance Meloche Monnex.

Saucier holds a bachelor’s degree in urban planning from the Université de Montréal.

She succeeds Éric Charbonneau who will return to his full-time duties as president of Société Centris inc., the Association's technology subsidiary. He had been leading the QPAREB team since its creation in January 2019.

"The QPAREB board of directors is extremely proud to have someone of Ms. Saucier's calibre lead our organization," said Nathalie Bégin, president of the board of directors. "Ms. Saucier is a sharp and strategic thinker, and she is eager to put her talents to work in the real estate industry."
