The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) has lost a third member of its management committee in just a few months. Daniel Dagenais, who was responsible for the smooth running of port operations, is leaving the company to take control of shipping company NEAS Group.

At the time of writing these lines, Mr. APM, who will continue his post as Vice President of Port Performance and Sustainable Development till October 10. Dagenais did not comment on the decision.

The announcement comes six days after Martin Imbleau left the Port of Montreal presidency to lead the VIA Rail subsidiary managing the development of high frequency rail (TGF) between Quebec and Toronto. The change was revealed by Law Press last July.

A sign of the importance of the role he occupies at the Port of Montreal, Mr. Dagenais can be found on the APM website directly under Acting President Genevieve Deschamps. Mr. Dagenais spent nearly 17 years at the federal agency.

With little publicity, the management committee also lost another member last April: Serge Aclair, who held the position of strategic vice president of talent and culture, digital transformation and procurement. He has more than 12 years of service in APM.

The changes in APM’s senior management come as negotiations continue with the Trudeau government aimed at securing additional funding to absorb cost overruns of the Contrecore port terminal project in Montreal’s southern suburbs.
