Celebrating 100 years of boldness and distinction with the HEC Montréal Alumni Association
As evening rolls around, we will switch over to celebration mode. The emcee for the 100th anniversary festivities will be HEC Montréal lecturer François Rioux, known and admired for his brilliant wit and charm. The highlight will be the presentation of six alumni awards, including two honorary titles.


HEC Montréal and the HEC Montréal Alumni Association are proud to pay tribute to two of our own as they inducted as Distinguished Alumni during Gala Luminescence.

Marie-Claude Gévry (HEC Montréal 1976 and 1979), Corporate Director, and Macky Tall (HEC Montréal 1990), Co-Chair, Infrastructure Group, The Carlyle Group, will be officially inducted on November 17. This honorary title is being granted to them in recognition of their remarkable career paths, the spirit of integrity that guides them, their outstanding commitment to giving back to society and their contributions to elevating HEC Montréal’s standing locally, nationally and internationally. The induction ceremony will be followed by a discussion with both honourees about their individual journeys and why their alma mater continues to be important to them.
