"I am honoured by the trust placed in me by the board members of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal," said Pierre Laporte, Chair of the Board of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal. "The past two years have shown our capacity for mobilization and the impact of the Chamber's position statements to support Montréal businesses during the crisis and defend their interests. As Chair, I hope to pursue these commitments to support our businesses as they relaunch and to promote a prosperous, dynamic business environment for our city."

Pierre Laporte has been a senior partner at Deloitte for 12 years and has a wealth of experience managing complex and multi-jurisdictional files. He is President of Deloitte Quebec and Vice-Chair of Deloitte Canada. He is responsible for business development for the Québec market and serves as a leader on several major accounts. He specializes in financial restructuring and has spent much of his career consulting on business recovery.

He has participated in several highly publicized cases, such as Davie Shipbuilding in Lévis (Quebec), Papiers Gaspésia and the restructuring of the ABCP program across Canada. Throughout his career, Mr. Laporte has advised many senior executives and business leaders both in Canada and abroad.

He is Chair of the Board of the Régie des installations olympiques and of the Quartier international de Montréal. He is a member of the Board, Chair of the Audit Committee, and Treasurer of the National Gallery of Canada Foundation, and a member of the Board of the Marie-Vincent Centre.

As Chair of the Board for 2021-2022, and then as Retiring Chair the following year, Mr. Laporte will play a strategic role with the Chamber's senior management and will be a regular presence at activities. During the year, he will also sit on the Chamber's executive committee.
