The Board of Directors of the Fédération de l'habitation coopérative du Québec (FHCQ-FECHIMM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Patrick Préville to the position of Executive Director.

Patrick Préville will assume his duties on Monday, November 8, 2021. He will be able to count on the support of the team and the members of the Board of Directors to ensure the success of his mandate at the head of the largest Quebec federation of housing cooperatives.

"I am very happy to join this group of wonderful individuals who share the values that drive me every day. Together, we will make the FHCQ a reference and a leader in the cooperative housing movement. What we offer is much more than housing; it is a project for society where living environments are mobilized for the common good. This is the message that I intend to spread around us," said Patrick Préville.

Who is Patrick Préville?

A specialist in reputation management, this graduate in communications and public relations from the Université de Montréal has a solid professional background. Over the past 15 years, Patrick Préville has held various strategic positions within large organizations, including Loto-Québec, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and Groupe Sélection.

During these years, he has also been an entrepreneur. With his consulting firm, he has advised and accompanied organizations from all walks of life (NPO, private, municipal), some of which were from the housing sector: OMHM, Corporation d'habitation Jeanne-Mance and KnightsBridge (sustainable construction).

However, it was in the community sector that he got his start with Loisirs Saint-Henri, Côte-des-Neiges en fête and Association Cigogne. There, he learned how to deal with few or no resources to build projects and achieve the set objectives.

His communication and persuasion skills, his profile as a caring leader, his sensitivity to housing issues, his entrepreneurial spirit, and his desire to make a difference in his community were all assets noted by the selection committee that recommended his hiring.

Patrick Préville's appointment is part of the wind of change introduced by the team of the Board of Directors elected at the 2021 General Assembly. The new Executive Director's mandate is to implement the vision of the Board of Directors to update the role of the FHCQ-FECHIMM.
