Tribute to Industry Pioneers

Initiated in 2005 by Rousseau Automotive Communication, the Tribute to Industry Pioneers gala, which was held on November 25, 2010, was the perfect occasion to celebrate the outstanding contributions of those leaders who have marked the automotive aftermarket industry in Quebec.

Jacques Landreville, former President and CEO of Uni-Select, was one the evening’s honorees. Daring, motivated and accomplished, Jacques Landreville has been an outstanding leader whose contribution in the company’s success cannot be overestimated.

From the moment he took the reins of Uni-Select in 1991, his contribution has been significant as the company increased its acquisitions and established significant business partnerships in both Canada and the United States. To this day, he continues to share his vast expertise and innovative spirit as a Member of the Uni-Select Board of Directors.

On behalf of all the Uni-Select employees and executives, we congratulate Jacques for the tribute much deserved paid to him, but more importantly, we thank him for his invaluable contribution and commitment to the success of the industry!
