Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. has appointed Pascale Tremblay chief assets officer, effective Aug. 16. In this new role, Tremblay will oversee the operations of the corporation’s 76 renewable energy facilities in Canada, the U.S., France and Chile.
Tremblay succeeds Peter Grover, senior vice president – operations who, after 16 years of service, will be gradually reducing his responsibilities with the intent to retire in late 2021.
“I want to thank Peter Grover for his many years of dedication to Innergex. His extensive knowledge in wind and solar technologies helped drive Innergex’s growth in these sectors,” said Michel Letellier, president and chief executive officer of Innergex. “We are proud to welcome Pascale Tremblay to our management team as her extensive experience in engineering both in the aerospace and hydropower sectors and her leadership, managerial and analysis skills will support Innergex’s strategy to maximize value from its quality assets and optimize operations.”
Before joining Innergex, Tremblay held a range of operational roles at Pratt & Whitney Canada, including most recently vice president of customer service operations. She has experience working on hydroelectric facilities, including various James Bay sites, in her project manager role at Tecsult Inc., an engineering consulting firm. She holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and a master’s degree in engineering management from Université de Sherbrooke. She is a member of the Ordre des Ingénieurs du Québec since 1990.
In addition, to strengthen and bring more diversity to the executive team, Yves Baribeault, senior vice president – legal affairs and secretary, and Alexandra Boislard, vice president – human resources will become respectively chief legal officer and secretary and chief human resources officer. These appointments will help guide Innergex’s continued growth and bring a broader set of skills to inform top-level decision-making, according to a press release.
