The Montreal Canadiens announced that they have appointed France Margaret Bélanger as President, Sports and Entertainment of the CH Group. This will give her a promotion, as she has been with the organization since 2013.

The Matane native has been in charge of legal affairs for the Montreal organization since she joined them. Prior to her recent promotion, she was also the executive vice president of business affairs and entertainment for the CH Group.

She is the first woman in history to take a seat on the Montreal Canadiens' executive committee. She also sits alongside Geoff Molson as the alternate NHL Governor for the Montreal Canadiens. Gary Bettman has also chosen her to sit on the NHL's Executive Inclusion Council. Clearly, she has a very impressive resume.

"It's an honour to become the President, Sports and Entertainment of this iconic organization. Together with our talented teams, we will continue to develop and deliver through our brands renowned sports and entertainment events to create unique and memorable experiences for the world's best fans," said France Margaret Bélanger.

Very good decision by the Montreal Canadiens! We need more women in sports. Sport belongs to everyone.
