Henri Dolino, former Director of Digital Strategy and Innovation at Desjardins, has joined the Quebec office of the French consultancy firm PMP as an Associate Director.
With an undergraduate degree from Polytech Nancy and an MBA from HEC Montréal (Finance and Business Strategy), Henri has enjoyed an international career spanning Germany, Madagascar, France and Canada.
Before joining PMP, Henri worked for almost fifteen years in the Canadian finance sector, ten of which were at Desjardins, Canada’s largest cooperative financial institution. He held posts including the Director of Digital Channels and Vice President for Strategy, Marketing and Client Experience for the group’s property and casualty insurance arm, as well as Director of Innovation and Strategy and then Director of Digital Strategy for the group as a whole.
From the very beginning of his career, Henri has been passionate about the way technology can affect organisational performance. He has helped numerous companies to capitalise on the opportunities presented by technology, developing innovative strategies and supporting their implementation in sectors including retail, telecommunications, audio-visual and transport.
“As a former PMP client, I’ve seen the extremely positive and concrete way their input can impact a business, through a combination of sector expertise, experience in the field and raw talent. I’m excited to make my own contribution to the success of PMP’s clients. The firm is aligned with my values and practises internally what it preaches externally: the importance of client experience, employee experience, agility, innovation and a rigorous approach!”
As well as engaging with senior leaders, Henri has personal experience in strengthening innovation and collaboration within the Canadian Finance Sector, in particular via the Montréal FinTech Station. He is also mentor to and investor in a number of FinTech projects.
Gilles Vaqué, President and Associate Director of PMP, said, “We are delighted to have Henri joining us to increase our expertise and reach in the Canadian banking sector. The problems that financial sector leaders have to solve are increasingly complex, involving such issues as changing models and digital opportunities. Henri’s expertise in these subjects, his willingness to take on challenges, his capacity to find disruptive solutions and his in-depth knowledge of the organisations involved make him a significant new resource for PMP and our clients.”
