From The Globe and Mail
SNC-Lavalin is pleased to announce that Réjean Goulet was named Executive Vice-President and General Counsel, and a member of the Office of the President, on May 3, 2012. This appointment is one of many steps SNC-Lavalin is taking in its ongoing efforts to implement recommendations emanating from a recent Internal Investigation, which will strengthen operations and reinforce best practices in corporate governance.
Mr. Goulet joined SNC-Lavalin in 1990 as Vice-President, Law, for the company’s Quebec General Engineering division, and became Lead Legal Counsel for the SNC-Lavalin Group four years later. In 2005, he was appointed Vice-President, Law, and was named Senior Vice-President and General Counsel in 2010.
At different points in his career with SNC-Lavalin, Mr. Goulet has had legal responsibility for acquisitions, such as the deal that saw the company take over the projects and employees of NEPCO in the United States, and public-private partnerships, including the Paris-Vatry Airport concession in France and the Canada Line rapid transit project in British Columbia. Most recently, he was involved with the company’s critical litigation files.
Mr. Goulet holds a Bachelor of Political Science degree from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), with a specialty in Political Analysis, and a Law degree from the Université de Sherbrooke.
SNC-Lavalin is one of the leading engineering and construction groups in the world, and a major player in the ownership of infrastructure, and in the provision of operations and maintenance services.
