RYE, N.Y. -- Rye resident Jacques Goulet, president of Retirement, Health, and Benefits for Mercer, a global consulting leader in advancing health, wealth and careers, has received the 2016 Maple Leaf Award of Distinction from the Canadian Association of New York (CANY).
Goulet was recognized as a prominent business leader with strong ties to Canada and New York City. A native of Shawinigan, Quebec, Canada, Goulet has lived and worked in the United States, France, Switzerland, and Canada over the course of his expansive global career with Mercer. He is currently based in New York.
“Canada is special to Mercer as the birthplace of our company and as the homeland to strong global leaders like Jacques,” said Julio A. Portalatin, president and chief executive officer of Mercer, a wholly owned subsidiary of Marsh and McLennan Companies. “We are deeply proud of him for this prestigious award as well as his extraordinary 28 year career here. Jacques is admired by our colleagues worldwide for his creativity, his tenacity, and, most of all, his sincere dedication to Mercer’s purpose to make a positive difference in people’s lives.”
The Canadian Association of New York honored Goulet at the Maple Leaf Ball in New York’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel on March 11. Proceeds from the annual black-tie gala dinner support the CANY Foundation charities: the Wheelchair Sports Federation Sled Rangers, Ice Hockey in Harlem, the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research, and Canada’s National Ballet School.
