Like the nature around us, our team of dedicated individuals changes over time. After 26 years at the helm of Les amis de la montagne during which she championed the cause of Mount Royal, Executive Director Sylvie Guilbault passes on the torch to Hélène Panaïoti, an outstanding communicator and seasoned manager.

Before her appointment as Executive Director, Hélène held the position of Director of Communications, Advocacy and Public Engagement since 2014, solidifying her knowledge of the issues related to the protection and improvement of Mount Royal. As a dedicated advocate of Mount Royal, she will continue to champion our mission with professionalism, determination and sensitivity.

After more than two decades spent working for and on Mount Royal, Sylvie Guilbault will continue to play an important role in Les amis’s future as a governor and board member.
