Diane Lafontaine joins Adviso's advisory committee
01 June 2021
Adviso is greatly honoured to welcome Diane Lafontaine to its advisory committee, which has been bringing together industry leaders in business and digital for the past 19 years, practically since the company’s very beginnings. Ms. Lafontaine joins Mr. Jean-René Halde, Mr. Stéphane Gagné and Mr. Jacques Nantel, who currently comprise the committee. Her experience will be an asset when it comes to guiding the firm’s overall strategic directions.
The past few months have seen the acceleration of companies’ digital transformations. For that reason I feel super enthusiastic to be joining the advisory committee of Adviso — a visionary organization that was natively digital well before it had become popular or necessary. Its leadership never stops reinventing itself. Also, they speak a language I recognize — results and performance! – Diane Lafontaine
