QUEBEC CITY, Que. — NOVA Permits and Pilot Cars underwent a change of ownership in December of 2005 and the new owners are envisioning a bright future for the company.
On Dec. 1, 2005, Louis Juneau, general manager, and Monique Comeau, director of finance and administration, officially purchased NOVA Permits and Pilot Cars. The announcement was made to employees during a general assembly of the company, as the new owners also announced two new personnel additions to the company.
Effective Dec. 5, 2005, Andrew Thompson joined NOVA as the new director of the permit centre, while Ken Robinson was appointed as the company’s newest permit specialist. Thompson is a veteran of the permitting industry and arrived to the company with more than 20 years of solid transportation industry experience. Robinson has more than three years of permit service to his credit and his knowledge will contribute to the company’s planned growth.
The new owners have been part of the NOVA team for more than 5 years. Juneau started his NOVA career in the Pilot Car Division and Comeau began hers in the Accounting Department. Both view the transaction as a positive step and they have great expectations for their company.
“Nova’s past few years have been eventful and not always easy,” said Juneau. “As NOVA employees ourselves, it is a real motivation for us to bring some well-deserved stability to a reputable company; but mostly, it is a privilege to bring hope and the vision of a very bright future to this group of incredible individuals that form the NOVA Team.”
Established in 1992, NOVA Permits and Pilot Cars provides permitting, pilot car and reporting services.
