Resolute yesterday announced a partnership from 2016 through 2019 with Marianne St-Gelais, world champion and winner of three Olympic medals in short track speed skating.
A native of Saint-Félicien, located in the Lac-Saint-Jean region, Marianne St-Gelais grew up in a family of foresters. With the support of her family and her community, she quickly excelled at her sport.
“This partnership reflects Resolute’s values and our involvement in local communities,” stated Resolute President and Chief Executive Officer Richard Garneau during a press conference attended by dignitaries, the St-Gelais family and Resolute employees.
Marianne St-Gelais has won many medals, including two silver medals at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and another silver in Sochi in 2014. Although she performed well at the World Championships over the past years, capturing silver and bronze medals, it was in March 2016 that she became world champion.
“I’m very touched to have a partner like Resolute. The company is active and important in my community and will certainly help me achieve my objectives as an athlete. The trees are the lungs of the Earth and the forest is a family affair for me. And I already feel part of the Resolute family,” stated Marianne St-Gelais.
