Robert Dépatie has announced he is stepping down as president and CEO of Quebecor and Quebecor Media and CEO of Videotron for health reasons.

The board of directors has announced the appointment of Pierre Dion to the position, with Dépatie helping in the transition until the end of May, according to a release.

Dépatie took on the position of president and CEO at Quebecor and Quebecor Media as well as CEO of Videotron from Pierre Karl Péladeau in May 2013. PKP, as he’s known in the industry, stepped down from his executive position in the company to run for political office as a Parti Québécois candidate, winning his riding of Saint-Jerome, QC.

Dion has been a member of Quebecor’s executive committee since 2004. He joined TVA Group, a subsidiary of Quebecor Media in 2004 as executive VP and COO and was promoted to president and CEO in 2005.
