Patrick Boivin has stepped down as Concordia University Director of Recreation and Athletics and has accepted the position of CEO and President of the Montreal Alouettes.
Boivin joined the university in the summer of 2013 after a distinguished administrative career with the NHL and the Montreal Canadiens.
“During Patrick’s time with Concordia, he made valuable contributions to the development of the Department of Recreation and Athletics, as well as to varsity and intramural sports programs,” says Lisa Ostiguy, deputy provost.
“Most notably, his leadership of the rebranding of the Stingers — which involved extensive consultation with students, coaches, athletes, alumni and staff — deepened our sense of pride within the Concordia community. This was especially true among the more than 350 student-athletes who play on our 10 varsity teams.”
