A Recognized Developer
A well-known businessman, Pierre Parent is the president of Resort One, a hotel banner specializing in the development of hotel-residences in Québec and abroad. He is also President of the Parim Group, which markets these projects and of R.O. Canada which manages and operates these hotels-residences.
Mr. Parent was the founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Promexpo, a firm which, for many years, organized various trade fairs, including the National Home Show in Montreal, which was acknowledged to be the most important housing event in America. Following the sale of this business, Mr. Parent created Resort One. The Caisse de Dépôt partnered with Mr. Parent in his first projects in Montreal, the Le Saint-Sulpice Hôtel having been a very successful endeavour. Mr. Parent has also been a member of the Board of Directors of two subsidiaries of the Caisse de Dépôt, namely CDP Capital and CDP Capital Communications. He has also been the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Société des Alcools du Québec and was a member of the Board of Quebecor.
