Statements from the new partners: 

Valérie Pomerleau: “Since my arrival at RyanAP, I discovered a new family with which I have been able to grow, unleash my talents, and build a practice. Thanks to my talented, passionate and devoted colleagues, I have contributed to making RyanAP better known in the regions of Quebec, especially in my native Abitibi-Témiscamingue, where we opened an office in 2020. It is a great privilege for me to become a partner at RyanAP.” 

Étienne Gosselin: “For years, RyanAP has attracted brilliant and passionate people. I have been lucky to work with this team, who works in an atmosphere of rigor, professionalism and fun.

I intend to continue promoting these values as a shareholder.” 

Simon-Pierre Diamond: “I am coming back to RyanAP after two years spent in the technology and artificial intelligence sector. I bring with me the energy of start-ups and the vision of a rapidly evolving society. Once more, it is as a consultant that I will contribute to the development of our society.
