About Normand

Upon completion of a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of West Florida, Normand joined Trans-Canada Glass Inc. as a Marketing Management trainee, focusing on brand image and business development.

In 1986, Mr. Lebeau left Trans-Canada and, along with another partner, founded what was to become one of the largest P.O.S. manufacturing firms in Canada. After successfully growing the business throughout Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa, Mr. Lebeau sold his equity position in 1996 to join Mandrake as the Managing Partner of the company's Montreal office. Since that time, he has developed a multi-specialist executive search practice servicing intermediate and senior levels within the Quebec market.

In September 2014, Mr. Lebeau was elected President of the International Executive Search Federation (IESF) at the Annual General Meeting in Delhi, India.

Mr. Lebeau was a Council member of the University Club of Montreal from 1998 to 2007 and a volunteer for the Quebec Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society from 1999 to 2002. In March of 2000, the Quebec MS Society gave him their Leadership Award for his enthusiasm and contribution as a member of the Quebec business community. He was also recruited as a Board member for the Montreal Economic Institute, a non-partisan economic and political think tank, for the Charles Bruneau Foundation, a charitable organization created to help cancer patients amongst children. Since 2008, Mr. Lebeau has been a mentor in the Montreal Young Chamber of commerce program. Currently, Mr. Lebeau is a member of the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal.

Mr. Lebeau has been invited as guest speaker at numerous Human Resources development events and conferences in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario in order to discuss topics such as Talent Management, and the HR Branding of organizations. Since 2007, he has presented a variety of subjects such as: Performance indicators in the executive search sector, Company integration strategies for candidates, the branding of service firms Canada wide within Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto along with International cities such as, Atlanta, Dallas, Moscow, Madrid and Hong-Kong.

Even after publishing a few articles within the framework of his functions, he is also often quoted in Quebec's trade publications, business newspapers and magazines as well as in the electronic media.
