"The addition of Michel to our MCI team is a reaffirmation of our commitment to continue investing in the Canadian market and helping our cities to thrive in the global arena of events," said Juliano Lissoni, managing director, MCI Group Canada Inc.  

"With a solid team in place and MCI’s reputation in the local market behind him, we expect MCI Montreal to increase its role as an engine of economic development for Montreal and for our country."
