As Senior Vice-President Small Business and Partnerships and Head of Insurance, Julie’s mandate is at the core of how EDC serves Canadian companies as they grow their businesses internationally. 

Julie oversees teams that deliver a wide range of services for every segment of EDC’s customer portfolio, from small businesses only beginning their exporting journey, to those larger and established exporters seeking to take their next step toward international growth. Her responsibilities include small business sales, the insurance underwriting teams and working capital solutions, customer care, partner channels and strategic alliances.

Since joining EDC in 1992, Julie has held a variety of leadership positions, and played a key role in a major system transformation within the organization. In addition to leading EDC’s national business development team, she has also served as Regional Underwriting Director, leading teams responsible for providing insurance, bonding and financing solutions to Quebec customers, and has led teams in negotiating strategic alliances.
