His passion for communication and marketing and his community engagement have allowed Claude Reid to accumulate a solid record in project management and coordination. After completing a B.A. in political science, and another one in industrial relations from Université of Montréal, Claude completed an MBA in 1999.
He worked as director of communication and business strategy for the Caisse Desjardins de Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, director of communications for the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec, communication agent for the Commission des valeurs mobilières du Québec, assistant public relations director for Québec of the Canadian Bankers Association and parliamentary assistant to the Beauharnois-Salaberry federal MP, from 1990 to 1993.
Since 2010, Claude is chairman of Moisson Sud-Ouest, after being president of many Salaberry-de-Valleyfield city commissions, where he was also a councillor for Georges-Leduc neighbourhood from 1999 to 2007. Joining the Coalition Avenir Québec team will allow him to continue working for the community and to be a strong voice for the people of his riding in the National assembly.
