Montréal, QC – Supported by professionals from MNP, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) is launching its recruitment campaign to find the best candidate to replace Mr. Gilles Courteau as League Commissioner. Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the job offer page to learn more about the job requirements.
A structured and rigorous process
Submitting applications is one of many steps in this process. The selection committee will be chaired by Mr. Richard Létourneau, current President of the QMJHL’s Members’ Assembly. The QMJHL plans to announce the name of Mr. Courteau’s successor at the end of May 2023.
Take note that this recruitment campaign is being launched following Gilles Courteau’s announcement on December 16, confirming his retirement after 47 years in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, including 37 years as its Commissioner.
Handing over the torch and keeping it burning
Mr. Courteau will remain in office for the first six months of the 2023-2024 fiscal year before handing over the reins to his successor, whom he will support in his new role until May 31, 2024.
“I am very proud of the evolution of the League and how it has built a strong reputation over the years. All of this was made possible through teamwork and everyone’s commitment. That is why I chose to stay on and support my successor during the transition period. Through teamwork and collaboration, the torch will keep burning bright,” said Gilles Courteau.
“Gilles Courteau has left a positive and lasting mark on the League. His achievements are numerous and thanks to his leadership, his vision, and how he promotes and encourages teamwork, he has contributed to increasing the prestige and credibility of the League”, added Richard Létourneau. “His advice on the recruitment process, combined with the support he offers to the person taking over, will contribute to a successful transition of the Commissioner’s duties.”
