Board of Directors

The HEC Montréal Foundation’s board of directors plays a vital governance role. All of our directors are themselves donors, and every donor category is represented on the board.



Guy Fréchette, FCPA, FCA
Corporate Director

“The board of directors ensures that effective governance practices are implemented across the Foundation and that the values of integrity and transparency underpin everything we do. In my capacity as chair, I am proud to collaborate with my fellow board members, each of whom is deeply invested in the success of the School and its students.”

Guy Fréchette, HEC 1970
