MONTREAL, Nov. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is extremely pleased to be associated once again this year with the Vision Trophies presentations, a joint initiative of the Chartered Accountants of Québec City and the Québec City Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the event is to recognize the visionary talent of companies operating in the Greater Québec City region.
This partnership stems from the excellent relations between Laurentian Bank and a growing number of businesses in the Québec City and the Chaudière-Appalaches regions. Recognized for its entrepreneurial spirit, the Bank clearly understands the realities of business owners. Consequently, it is well positioned to be able to offer them personalized services that are well adapted to their situations and needs. Indeed, the Bank's solid grasp of their concerns and the issues they are confronted with is at the very heart of the confidence that binds the institution to SMEs. Moreover, Laurentian Bank firmly believes that it is essential to recognize the vision, perseverance and excellence exhibited by SMEs to stimulate innovation and competitiveness.
"Small and medium-sized enterprises that distinguish themselves through their vision serve as veritable engines driving the economic development of our region," underlines Mr. Jonathan Legault, Assistant Vice-President of SME Services for the Québec City region and Eastern Québec. "These businesses contribute substantially to the extremely positive momentum that continues to prevail within our region, and we are very proud to be celebrating their success."
