Françoise Bertrand has announced her resignation as chair of the CRTC and will take a consulting position in the private sector. Bertrand had been seeking a reappointment but when the federal government wouldn’t confirm if the job was still hers, she reportedly decided to leave for the private sector. Effective February 15, she will return to Montreal to take the helm of the strategic consulting practice for the communications sector with Secor Consulting. Due to her international ties, she will also have a role in consulting with Secor’s team in Paris. Secor’s president Marcel Côté says her wealth of experience in the telecommunications field as well as her understanding of the latest issues will provide an important complement to the company’s existing expertise. Bertrand first became chair of the CRTC in August 1996 and served over several significant telecommunications decisions that has led to the emergence of a greater effort towards convergence in the telecommunications industry. Prior to joining the CRTC, she was CEO of Quebec’s educational television network, Radio-Québec from 1988 to 1995. Previously, Bertrand was dean of resource management at the Université du Québec in Montreal.
