Andrée Cossette announces she is leaving Ubisoft after 22
years, where she
has most recently been serving as Managing Director of Ubisoft Quebec (thanks
). The company has seen several recent departures amid
their sexual harassment scandal, but she says this is not actually why she's
resigning. The post is in French, but there's an English translation that reads
It is with great emotion that I turn the page today on 22
years at home Ubisoft and that I begin a new professional chapter, which remains
to be written. I had the chance and the honor to collaborate at the beginning of
Ubisoft Montréal, and then to found in Ubisoft Québec 2005 alongside Nicolas
Rioux. The role of general manager of the studio brought me great challenges and
I was able to put in place an ambitious plan for the future. At the same time, I
began a deeper, more personal reflection, which allowed me to realize that I was
no longer where I wanted to be and that it was time for me to pass the torch and
think about other projects for the future. My decision is the result of a long
reflection and is not related to the current situation within the Ubisoft Group.
When I look at the last 15 years at the Quebec City studio, I am extremely proud
of our career. You are an incredible team and it has been an honour to rub
shoulders with you and work with you. You have been a real inspiration to me.
I don't know what the future holds, but I know that the Ubisoft Quebec team is
in good hands.
Thank you to everyone I've had the chance to meet over the past 22 years. See
you very soon I hope.
