The Montreal Canadiens have brought on board the first woman executive in their team’s 104-year history, appointing France Margaret Bélanger to the position of President, Sports and Entertainment.

"With her mobilizing leadership and expertise France Margaret will continue building on successful partnerships and leading our one-team approach across the organization," said Geoff Molson.

"It is an honor for me to become the president, sports and entertainment of this iconic organization. Together with our amazing and talented teams, we will continue to develop and deliver world-class sports and entertainment events across our brands that create unique and memorable experiences for the best fans in the world," added France Margaret Bélanger.

Bélanger also sits alongside Molson as the Canadiens' alternate governor on the NHL Board of Governors. In 2020, she was selected by Commissioner Gary Bettman to serve on the NHL's Executive Inclusion Council.
