Michel LaPalme began his career in consulting engineering at LNLLR, which became CIMA+ in 1990.
He was a member of the Board of Directors from 1993 to 2000, and Director of the Sherbrooke office from 1994 to 1998. Since 2000, he has been responsible for occasional assignments related to the development and design of major international projects. Throughout his career, Michel has been very active with the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec, carrying out a variety of responsibilities.
His appreciation for his role on the Board of Directors
Sitting on the Board of Directors provides an overview of the firm with respect to its strategic plan, its finances and its directions. Michel finds it very stimulating to interact with independent administrators Réal Plourde and Gérard Geoffrion, who have a wealth of experience to share, but who also have the straightforwardness and warmth that characterize the CIMA+ culture.
His love of international projects
The learning continues: From 2000 to 2014, Michel was involved in a number of projects in Africa. He takes pleasure in discovering different lifestyles, while continuing to learn as an engineer, thanks to the specific challenges posed by projects carried out on that continent.
