Biography of Annie Lemieux
President of LSR GesDEV, a real estate management company, Annie Lemieux is without a doubt one of the women who has most succeeded at balancing business with making her dreams come true. A mother of two, she is ambitious and a visionary. Skilled at bringing people together, she is also highly creative. Her ability to build strong relationships, whether in business or in her community, is unmatched.
Today, her company’s investments are international in scope. In addition to owning buildings in Québec, France, and the United States, Annie Lemieux and her team manage a portfolio of over 1,500 units, some of which they own, and many of which are owned in partnership with investors. Some 400 units are associated with the health sector.
According to Annie, to make a project stand out as a unique housing project, it is important to look to the future instead of relying on statistics and past achievement. When she is developing strategic partnerships, she puts together a team that seeks to push the limits and satisfy needs that have mostly not even been imagined yet.
In 2016, Annie Lemieux started a new company, the Société Albert. It is a property management service with added value that relies on the know-how and expertise of its team. Annie wanted to give others the chance to work with a manager who could add value to their development through a comprehensive and technological approach.
In addition to her great entrepreneurial talents, Annie Lemieux throws herself into causes that are close to her heart. Her involvement with the Fondation CHU Sainte-Justine goes back 11 years. As a member of the Heal More Better campaign office, in 2007, she founded the Foundation’s Winter Triathlon, now held annually, in which numerous businesses help raise money for sick children. She also participated in two other major fundraising projects for CHU Sainte-Justine, Chantons pour Sainte-Justine and 50 femmes de tête et de Coeur. These events garnered $2 million in all.
