UNIMAX LTD (POINT S CANADA) & DISTRIBUTION STOX PRESIDENT AND CEO BRUNO LECLAIR TO RETIRE FOR MAY 2022

Mr. Jocelyn Bernard, Chairman of the Boards of Unimax Ltd. (Point S Canada) and Distribution Stox Inc., announces that Mr. Bruno Leclair has decided to retire at the end of May 2022. Mr. Leclair joined the company in 2011 as President & Chief Executive Officer of Unimax Ltd. He has also held the position of President & Chief Executive Officer of Distribution Stox since its founding in September 2016. Mr. Bernard emphasizes that, throughout his 10 years at the company, Bruno significantly contributed to developing the network. The major projects initiated by him include Unimax Ltd.'s shift from a co-operative model to that of a corporate entity, the transition of the Unipneu banner toward Point S, and the creation of Point S Canada and Distribution Stox. He also took part in the creation of Point S North America.

For the past 10 years, Bruno has provided exceptional leadership, visionary thinking, and boundless dedication to our network, leaving in place a high-quality team. “I would like to thank Bruno for his exemplary contribution to the strategy and growth initiatives of Points S Canada, as well as for the creation of Distribution Stox. Bruno was a driving force behind the growth of Unimax and Distribution Stox. We are all deeply grateful to him, and I wish to personally highlight his many contributions,” stated Jocelyn Bernard, Board Chair of both Unimax and Distribution Stox.

As Bruno Leclair notes, “it is with much emotion that I will be leaving my duties this coming spring for what I deem to be a well-deserved retirement. The time has come for me to take better advantage of life in terms of my family and, especially, to embrace a change of pace.” Mr. Leclair also thanks all past and current members of the two boards of directors, his management team, and every one of his employees “all of whom offered me tremendous support during the implementation of this corporate shift.” Furthermore, “after such a productive career spanning over 35 years, I wish him a wonderful, long and rewarding retirement,” concluded Mr. Bernard. The Companies’ boards of directors have already begun the recruitment process to find his successor. Bruno Leclair will continue in his role until the end of May 2022 to ensure a smooth transition.
