Toronto, 29 November 2010 – Ernst & Young congratulates Anne-Marie Hubert, Managing Partner, Advisory Services, for being named a recipient of the prestigious 2010 Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100™ Awards.
“The honour is richly deserved. Anne-Marie is an outstanding leader whose drive, commitment and candour help her make a difference to our clients, to our firm, and to Ernst & Young’s women professionals,” said Trent Henry, Ernst & Young Canadian Chairman and CEO. “Throughout her career, Anne-Marie has always upheld the highest professional standards. As a member of Ernst & Young Canada’s Executive Committee, she has established a reputation for challenging the status quo to make it easier for all our people to offer quality service and positively impact our economy and our communities.”

“The recent financial crisis presents a real need to rethink the way we do things,” says Hubert. “We need to draw on the widest range of talent. The vast economic potential of women as an economic force has yet to be realized. Research shows that women make significant and proven contributions to business and economic growth. Now is the time to realize and harness the positive effect that women’s economic empowerment and leadership can have on the global economy.”
Hubert provides board members and senior management teams with strategic advice on governance, performance and risk management. Focused on opportunity and results, she has a track record of helping clients successfully rethink business models to create more solid foundations for growth and establishing a long-term competitive advantage, while managing increasing risk exposures.
Hubert is well known for her positive outlook and ability to bring people from diverse backgrounds together to achieve common goals. Most recently, as a board director of the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ), she participated and contributed to Economic Vision report on Building a Successful Quebec.
“Every year, we honour the exceptional female leaders of Canada,” said Pamela Jeffery, Founder, Women’s Executive Network. “They each have remarkable achievements and Top 100 is a mark of their success and how they have supported their communities, companies, and organizations. Our Top 100 community is a powerful group of women who are at the top of their game, exemplify success and empower the next generation of women to take their careers to the next level.”
