Head, Operations & Strategy
Curiosity has been the common thread uniting the different stages of Véronique’s career. Starting as a journalist for TC Media in 2005, she was drawn to politics and worked her way up to the position of Editor-in-Chief. During this time, she assigned tasks and projects to journalists, created editorial boards and outlines and oversaw the planning and conception of both written and visual content to be featured in print and online media outlets. Before going back to school to become a lawyer, she was also a freelance researcher in television and cinema. Véronique worked in real estate law at Oxford Properties while completing her studies, then in commercial litigation at Rolland Séguin Sauvé Pellerin Avocats Inc for two years. She then did her internship in labour law at Dunton Rainville after passing the Bar.
Shortly afterwards, Véronique was headhunted by Boyden, a global leader in executive search with more than 65 offices in over 35 countries. Responsible for the entire recruitment cycle and strategies for start-ups, crown corporations and multinationals, with positions including Board Members, C-Suite and other executive roles, Véronique focused on assignments in technology, and healthcare sectors, among others. Her unique career and thirst for learning brought her to giiant pharma in 2020. Véronique’s ultimate goal is to improve her business acumen by working closely with entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. Véronique is responsible for all the non-scientific operations of the company including, but not limited to, legal, human resources, communications and financing.
Véronique also serves on the Board of Directors of Medzy, an innovative healthcare technology company. She holds a Bachelor in Literature from the Université de Montréal, a Bachelor of Law from the Université du Québec à Montréal, and she is a member of Quebec’s Bar. Véronique is a fervent music and stand-up comedy lover, as well as a ballet dancer and cycling aficionado.
