We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Christophe Desage, Vice-President, Western Canada Operations and partner at BBA. He passed away suddenly this week at the age of 53.

  1. “A pillar of BBA culture has sadly left us,” says Jérôme Pelletier, President of BBA. “Christophe was driven by a keen entrepreneurial spirit steeped in human values. He will be deeply missed, but his invaluable contribution to our firm’s evolution over more than 26 years will assuredly continue to inspire and guide us.”

    Christophe was with BBA since 1997 and was a visionary leader and a mentor to many of our team members. Among his greatest achievements, he was the principal architect of BBA's presence in Western Canada and guided our firm’s growth as a member of BBA's Board of Directors for more than nine years, including five as Chair.

    At this difficult time, our hearts and thoughts are entirely dedicated to his family, friends and all those who had the privilege of knowing this great man, sharing precious moments and working closely with him.
