The Quebec Jewellers Corporation (QJC), or CBQ, has named Habib Malo of Malo Creations as president, replacing André Marchand, who is leaving to focus more on family and health.
“Thanks in part to his hard work and charisma, [André] was able to help position QJC to ensure its credibility among both consumers and other organizations, such as the Office of Consumer Affairs and Ministry of Industry,” said Quebec Jewellers Corp. in a statement.
“We thank [André] for his involvement and all of his accomplishments and wish him a well-deserved rest. He will always be welcome at the QJC.”
Malo, who has been a member of the executive committee for 20 years, is co-owner of the Laval-based company Malo Creations. Today, Malo Creations manufactures wedding bands, engagement rings, and eternity rings but started out in the retail sector when the Malo family immigrated to Canada from Turkey.
Malo Creations also manufactures and distributes Candy Ice, a line of interchangeable jewellery.
The other members of the executive committee serving with Malo include Carmen Rivet, Robert Beaulne, Normand Roy, Pierre Tremblay, Stéphane Lavoie, Simon Marcil, Gary Dubrovsky, and Denis Lafontaine. Véronique Guérin will serve as an observer. CJ
