Assumption Life announced Dec. 7 that its President and CEO, André Vincent, will be leaving his current position on Dec. 31, 2018. Effective Jan. 1, 2019, he will assume the role of senior advisor to the new President and CEO, until he officially retires on June 30, 2019. Sébastien Dupuis will become Assumption Life’s next president and CEO.
Vincent has been at the helm of the Acadian company since April 2013, guiding it through a major transformation of its activities, including its digital transformation.
“I’m very proud of the work we have accomplished and the path the company is on. Assumption Life is in good health, and I’m leaving it in the capable hands of a qualified President and CEO, a strong management team and professional employees who are determined to ensure its development and continuity for many years to come,” said Vincent.
Sébastien Dupuis has worked with the company for the past 17 years in various roles, including director of finance, chief risk officer, vice-president and chief financial officer and, most recently, vice-president, chief financial officer and strategic partnerships.
Dupuis will assume his new role on Jan. 1. “Assumption Life has had a special place in my heart since 2001, so it is an honour for me to enter this new chapter in my career with the organization. I would like to thank Mr. Vincent for his outstanding work over the past six years and look forward to benefiting from his time with us as senior advisor to ensure the transition goes smoothly,” he said.
