In 2014, he returned to Westburne as a Branch Manager in Joliette and then in Laval and St-Jerome. He demonstrated great skills in developing relationships with our suppliers and customers, implementing sales strategies and ensuring customer satisfaction, which allowed him to achieve sales objectives and growth within the organization.

In this new role, Stephane will ensure profitable sales growth through the development of go-to-market strategies, goal setting, action plans and follow-up of sales initiatives. He will work closely with the Regional Sales Directors and Westburne’s various specialists to optimize both their short and long-term results.

Alexandra Pelletier has been appointed Branch Manager for the Joliette and St. Jerome branches. Alexandra started her new role on January 10, 2023.

Alexandra joined Westburne in 2019 as a Customer Service and Operations Supervisor. Her performance at Westburne have been outstanding, enabling her to be promoted to Branch Supervisor in January 2021. Prior to joining the company, Alexandra held the role of Operations Assistant at Bei Group Inc, a provider of industrial electricity, automation and preventive maintenance.

In this new role, Alexandra’s focus will be to deploy development strategies to maximize profitability, as well as managing Joliette and St. Jerome branches’ staff. She will safeguard the high level of customer service, while ensuring that the unique objectives of both branches are met.

Alexandra reports directly to Nicolas Pinard.

To increase Westburne’s project closure rates and improve their customer service levels in project delivery, Jacques Fiset will now focus his attention on their centralized project bidding and coordination departments. He will drive changes in both departments as we adapt to an increasingly demanding market. Jacques will also remain involved on a daily basis with key manufacturing partners regarding projects.
