Rideau Recognition Solutions today announced the appointment of Jean-Francois Grou as President & Chief Operating Officer. He’ll report to CEO Peter Hart and be responsible for bringing Rideau’s award-winning recognition programs to clients around the world.
Grou has an impressive track record of spurring growth. For example, 20-20 Technologies grew revenue more than six-fold in the 12 years during Grou’s 12 years working with the company’s founder to refine strategy and develop talent. His efforts include bringing 20-20 public in a 2004 IPO.
Grou is also an accomplished technologist having earned the title Quebec’s IT Person of the Year in 2004. His expertise includes helping technology-dependent businesses craft innovations visions and business models and secure profitable strategic partnerships, among other things. Now, he’ll bring this portfolio of skills to bear for Rideau.
“I welcome Jean-François to Rideau’s management team and believe that with his addition, our executive team has never been stronger. Jean-François’ expertise in management, technology, and mergers and acquisitions will help drive Rideau’s industry leadership and growth. I look forward to working with him and taking Rideau to the next level.”
Dozens of Global 1000 companies already leverage Rideau's proven advantages for creating better workplaces. Current clients include Boeing, Intel, Oracle, RBC, TD and Liberty Mutual, among others.
"I’ve spent the better part of two decades developing high-performance cultures and companies. Now, with Rideau, I’m joining one," said Grou. "Together with Peter and the rest of management team, I’m looking forward to the challenge of taking our story of better results through recognition and happier workplaces to a global audience.”
