Eastman, May 14th 2008 – At eighty-one years young, Hubert Boissé was honoured with the gold medal at the national final of the Grands Prix du tourisme québécois as tourism’s employee of the year. Member of Spa Eastman’s staff since 1991, Mr. Boissé enjoyed an evening filled with emotion.

“Just being nominated was a gift in itself” said Hubert Boissé after receiving his prize. “In life, we shouldn’t expect or even hope for such things to happen. But when they do, you have to consider them as gifts from the stars. Gifts are received and given but, I believe our most important role in life is giving. Don’t you think? After all, that’s what I do at Spa Eastman and I’m happy to have been able to for all these years”, added the laureate.

Mr Hubert Boissé has been a proud member of the Spa Eastman team since 1991. He was the night watchman for several years before being assigned the responsibility of maintaining the nature trails and official chauffeur to our clients arriving by bus; two roles that he continues to hold today. Spa Eastman’s president and general director, Jocelyna Dubuc, chose to nominate Mr Boissé “because he totally personifies Spa Eastman’s philosophy: by eating wholesome and natural foods, exercising daily and adopting a healthful way of life he has succeeded at 81 years of age to stay fit and healthy.”

“He is a living example of Spa Eastman’s mission and his single most important responsibility is to make our clients smile! Whether removing a dangerous stump from a trail or greeting a client at the bus station in the village, Hubert does each job with equal amounts of enjoyment and zeal. His joie de vivre and legendary patience have made him one of the most liked employees by clients and other employees alike,” added Jocelyna Dubuc. Hubert Boissé is committed to preserving the natural beauty of the forest that surrounds Spa Eastman. In fact, one of its trails was named after him.

Jocelyna Dubuc is proud that the tourism industry has chosen to pay homage to Hubert Boissé. “The success of the industry relies primarily on human experience. We believe that it is people like Mr Boissé who can make the difference between an interesting tourist experience and an exceptional one. Therefore, he completely deserves this honour. Could he, for that matter, be an inspiration for the tourism industry as a whole?” concluded Jocelyna Dubuc.
