He succeeds Jean-François Thibodeau, who is retiring after a 15-year stint at the company in March.
"A new chapter has begun with the arrival of Bruno Guilmette, whose management profile in the financial services and infrastructure investment sector in Canada and abroad will undoubtedly contribute to the progress of the corporation in the coming years," said Patrick Lemaire, president and ceo of Boralex, in a statement.
