MONTREAL, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, the Quebec Technology Association revealed the names of the three finalists for the prestigious 2013 Investissement Québec Technology CEO of the Year Award. The three finalists are:

  • Daniel Handfield, CEO, Médiamed Technologies
  • Paul Raymond, President and Chief Executive Officer, Alithis
  • Sébastien Vachon, President, Korem

Since 2003, this contest has been shining the spotlight on CEOs of technology companies in recognition of their exemplary leadership and contributions to the visibility of the Quebec Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry. The finalists were chosen by an independent selection committee comprised of CEOs of ICT companies and representatives of Investissement Québec and the Quebec Technology Association.

"The ICT industry plays a substantial role in economic development and Investissement Québec is proud to recognize the contributions of this industry's leaders. Our three finalists are clearly representative of the broad range of companies that drive the Quebec ICT industry," stated Jacques Daoust, President and Chief Executive Officer of Investissement Quebec.

Awards will be presented during CEO Vision, an exclusive event for CEOs of technology companies, which will be held from February 20 to 23 at Mont Tremblant. Attendance at the awards ceremony is reserved exclusively for CEOs registered for CEO Vision, as well as event sponsors and partners. In addition to receiving extensive press coverage, the finalists will present their projects to their peers who will then select the 2013 winner by secret ballot during the gala event on February 21.

"We congratulate all three of our CEO finalists for their insight and determination to drive their company's growth. Together they provide a clear picture of the scope and variety of successful companies active across several market segments," said Nicole Martel, CEO of AQT.

The 2013 Investissement Québec CEO of the Year Award relies on the support of its media partner Les Affaires, whose next issue includes exclusive Web coverage of each of the finalists.
