Sylvie Le Bouthillier – Principal, Ottawa, Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec
Sylvie began her career with KPMG Montreal, where she earned her CPA, CA designation, and over the years she developed her passion helping organizations to grow, overcome challenges and take on opportunities. Her knowledge was accelerated by embracing difficult challenges, resulting in a broad-based career, spanning from driving Finance departments to their next levels, to working with owners or executives on holistic business strategies and improvement projects. For example: cost analysis/savings, budgets/forecasts, reporting/KPIs, process re-engineering, M&A, policies/procedures, project management, ERP system implementations, purchasing, sales, logistic/supply chain, HR and customer service. Sylvie has over 25 years of experience mainly in Canada and the US but also in Europe, in French or English, with local/small to international organizations, but also with non-for-profits of all sizes.
Her solution-driven and forward-thinking, as well as her leadership, organization skills, expertise, passion and energy have been applauded. Sylvie continually focuses on improvements and results, ensuring management and team members are working both efficiently and together towards the same goals; and doing so while adding value via people, processes and systems.
She’s recognized for successful contributions to organizations and for exceeding her client’s expectations on major successful transformation, in various industries, organization sizes/geography, including in Services, Construction engineering (Balfour Betty), Healthcare (Sterling Healthcare), Bombardier, Government (Shelby County TN, 7 cities) and IT/Strategy consulting (DMR, later bought by Fujitsu, and R3D which stands for Reinventing the Business’ 3 Dimensions).
In addition to her love of adding value to businesses, Sylvie is involved with several not-for-profits of various sizes and missions, as “giving back” is of utmost importance to her. When working in the US, she spent several years on the Board of the top 3 ranked YMCA of the nation (350-450 employees), but was/is also on smaller Boards. She volunteered many years at the Ronald McDonald House in Memphis TN (hosting 50 international families with a child with cancer, treated at St-Judes) and will continue to put charity work on her list of priorities.
