Guy Tousignant is a champion of progressive thinking and adaptation. In fact, adaptation has been his north star in business, guided by Charles Darwin’s famous quote, “It is not the strongest species that survive nor the most intelligent, but the quickest to adapt to change.” For Guy, starting and operating multiple businesses and embracing acquisition formed him quickly. Dynamic thinking proved to be his strongest trait when he embarked on a 15-year journey in a leadership role in North America with an Italian manufacturer. The light-speed growing pace required confidence and vision during uncertainty in this organization, moving from 100 to 2,500 people with the business volume increasing from tens of millions to several hundreds of millions of dollars, from a presence in a few countries to over 70 countries.
Today’s leaders must continue to evolve, TEC is an opportunity to share and mentor others that are ready to learn, develop and reach new heights both in business and their personal lives. As a TEC Chair, Guy believes that leading a group of driven individuals to become their best through their peer group, thought leadership and a global network, is the pinnacle of fulfillment.
