Victrix Announces the Appointment of Serge Beauchemin to its Board of Directors

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Victrix, an integrated information technology services company, announced on May 24, at the meeting of its Board of Directors, the appointment of Mr. Serge Beauchemin, a well-known entrepreneur and President of the Créacor Group, as a member of its Board of Directors.

Victrix's choice of Serge Beauchemin was based on his business vision and the leadership qualities he has shown throughout his career in business. Indeed, he is the man behind the company 3-SOFT, one of Quebec's leading IT firms. During his many years at the helm of this company, he made the most of his talents, and in the space of four years he succeeded in making 3-SOFT the top software vendor in Quebec and third in Canada. The company has been named as one of the 50 best-managed companies in Canada for six years in a row. With his wide experience, Serge Beauchemin has been recognized by his peers on numerous occasions: in 1999 he was among the Top 40 most successful Canadians under 40, and in 2000 he received the prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year award from the firm Ernst and Young.

Mr. Beauchemin has been brought in as part of Victrix's governance team following the company's adoption of a strong business plan aimed at broadening its areas of expertise, pursuing its organic growth, and taking advantage of a market that is favourable to acquisitions. In this context, Victrix is ΓÇïΓÇïdetermined to recruit experienced members who stand out as a result of their business vision and vast experience in the field of information technology. "We are honoured to welcome Mr. Beauchemin to our team of directors," said Victrix President and COO Pierre-Yves Martel. "His extensive experience in marketing and in managing organizations, and his talent as a motivator will make him a key player in the company's decision-making in the future." For his part, Mr. Beauchemin said that the Victrix Board of Directors is ΓÇïΓÇïone of the most dynamic teams in Quebec. "The members Victrix has brought together on its Board of Directors have all participated in building successful businesses, and I am honoured to be part of it and to have this opportunity to make my own contribution to the company's future success."

Mr. Beauchemin and Victrix have long had close business ties. In 2003, Victrix started its commercial operations by acquiring a subsidiary of 3-SOFT offering IT consulting services, which Mr. Beauchemin was operating at the time. If the past can tell us anything about the future, it seems certain that this collaboration will bring further success to Victrix.
