About

Sarah Houde began her career as director of communications and public relations for private companies and non-profit organizations. Then, as General Manager, she took the reins of the Canada-wide organization Youth Fusion, which doubled in size during her three years of leadership. She then joined the team at private equity firm XPND Capital as vice-president of public and government affairs, where she oversaw a number of transportation electrification projects. In the fall of 2017, she became president and CEO of the new electric and intelligent transportation cluster, with a mandate to position the province among world leaders in the sector, a position she held until the fall of 2023. She then decided to take the entrepreneurial plunge and co-founded MileBox, a company of electric cargo bikes designed and assembled in Quebec, in line with her values of sustainable development.

Ms. Houde holds a bachelor's degree from Université de Montréal, a master's degree in political science from McGill University, and a specialized higher education diploma in management from HEC Montréal.
