These expert topics have focused on digital transformation, new technology and innovation and product management for more than 25 years. From 2002 to 2017, Sylvie has been in various roles at CGI from Director to Vice President of Innovation and Telecommunications. Since 2018, Sylvie has been Executive VP at Proaction Technologies. Sylvie is responsible for information technology for Proaction International as well as performance management software solutions UTrakk_DMeS. She is passionate about research, new technologies, new methodologies, sustainable development and the preparation of the next generation.
