The news was confirmed in the Journal this Wednesday morning by Hydro-Quebec’s communications manager, Marc Antoine Pouliot.

At Bombardier, Mr. Murray will serve as Executive Vice President. His appointment is scheduled for October 8.

David Murray joined Hydro-Québec in 2015 as Vice-President, Information and Communications Technologies. The Crown corporation was then headed by Éric Martel, who had left Bombardier to run Hydro-Québec.

A year later, Mr. Murray was promoted to president of the Distribution division of Hydro-Québec. Since February 2021, Mr. Murray served as Chief Innovation Officer and Executive Vice-President, Health, Safety and Environment Production.

In a way, Mr. Murray will therefore join Eric Martel, who has since become the big boss of Bombardier. The latter has since been replaced by Sophie Brochu who thus loses her main sidekick.

Shortly before 11 am on Wednesday, the action of the aircraft manufacturer rose 3.01% on the Toronto Stock Exchange, to settle at $ 1.88. Since the start of the year, the value of its stock has jumped 300%.
