He has broad-based knowledge of the company and depth of financial acumen," stated Yves Laflamme, president and CEO. "The promotion of Remi to this critically important role reflects well on the development of internal talent here at Resolute. As part of our Executive Team, Remi's diversity of experience, rigorous approach and commitment to excellence will support the company's ongoing transformation."
