TC Transcontinental (Montreal) has announced that Isabelle Marcoux, Chair of its Board of Directors, has been appointed a Member of the Order of Canada. This is the second generation of the Marcoux family to be granted this exceptional Canadian honour. Her father, Rémi Marcoux, founder of TC Transcontinental and a current Director on its Board, was himself appointed to the Order of Canada in 2007. “Like her father who founded the company, Ms. Marcoux is, in turn, deeply committed today to the sustained development of TC Transcontinental, a Québec corporation based in Montréal with a presence throughout North America, as well as within her own community,” the company added.
Marcoux’s career has been marked by many professional and philanthropic achievements over the years, particularly since she took over as Chair of the Board of TC Transcontinental in 2012. These include strategic transformation of the company into flexible packaging to ensure its lasting growth, advancement of women into leadership roles in the business community, co-chair of the 2016 campaign of Centraide of Greater Montréal, and for the past two years, chair of the Major Donors’ Circle. In addition, she’s leveraged her expertise as a board member of publicly-traded Canadian corporations for many years.
“It is a great honour for me to be appointed as Member of the Order of Canada,” she said. “I’m humbled to receive this distinction which I share with my family and all my colleagues at TC Transcontinental. Seeing our second generation honoured in this way is very moving. I’m touched and delighted by the recognition of our family values of respect, determination and philanthropic commitment, which still continue to guide our actions for now and forever.”
