Incendo President Jean Bureau Departs


Jean Bureau is set to step down as president and CEO of Incendo after more than 20 years at the helm of the company.

Jean-Philippe Normandeau will stay on as chief operating officer of Incendo and will maintain continuity in the development of the company. Normandeau joined Incendo in 2013. He was previously director-general of financing and tax assistance at the Société de développement des entreprises culturelles du Québec (SODEC) and an economic advisor in the office of the Quebec Minister of Finance.

Bureau said: “Incendo has made a name for itself worldwide and now enjoys an enviable international reputation thanks to its people’s talent, dedication and professionalism. I will always be grateful to them and I wish them every success in the future.”

Pierre Karl Péladeau, acting president and CEO of TVA Group, said: “Jean has been a pioneer in film and television production and distribution, not only in Canada but on the international stage. With his leadership, business acumen and passion for the industry, he built a first-class team and he leaves a legacy that extends well beyond our borders. It has been an honor to work with Jean over the past three years.”

Yann Paquet, VP of strategy and international affairs of Quebecor Content, said: “Jean-Philippe is the ideal person to ensure Incendo’s success in the years to come. He is a talented and accomplished manager who has held important positions throughout his career. He will be able to count on our support to continue the company’s development.”
