Action in the great outdoors best describes this dynamic personality who joined the Surmesur team in July 2015.
Philippe racks up personal accomplishments, from high-level skiing to earning first place in the Business Games. But what really defines the director of our Quebec City boutique is his passion for oceans and mountains. He dreams of one day living in a way that allows him to juggle these two places.
Originally from the Baie des Chaleurs region, this bachelor of business administration spends his spare time . . . breathing fresh air! But don’t imagine him lying in the grass contemplating the clouds. Philippe is a man of action! In fact, he fearlessly practises that dangerous sport known as ultimate Frisbee.
A former trade delegate, Philippe enjoys challenges and strong emotions, and Surmesur understood! Efficient and attentive to his team’s needs, he accepted to lead the dynamic Quebec City boutique with one goal in mind: to offer clients the best shopping experience ever.
A proud Montrealer of Haitian origin, ‘Chris’ is driven by one thing: creation. He’s the first to admit that it’s his only passion. Even though he studied clothing structure, his heart belongs to accessories, particularly bow ties. For now, at least. While he is a talented designer, Christopher is also a daring entrepreneur, having launched his own brand.
The Exorphe Collection came into being by way of a happy accident. During an event, Christopher was tasked with finding a particular style of bow tie. When he couldn’t find what he was looking for, he simply decided to create it himself.
That’s all it took for this fabric architect to launch the Exorphe Collection, a line of handmade bow ties marrying form and colour at a price that flusters the competition.
But the artist doesn’t stop there. He is currently studying to become a patternmaker while continuing to offer his services as a style consultant at Surmesur, a house of creation on a different level, where he can share his enthusiasm and his open mind.
When the timing is right, music gives rhythm to the life of this exceptional manager. The native of Abitibi, Quebec, is not only inventive and proactive, but also sporty, playing soccer and, more recently, spikeball, an up-and-coming sport of which he is the proud instigator in Montreal.
His studies in commerce and his bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing have helped him channel his energy.
After a successful stint in the banking sector, Marius was drawn into the world of fashion, and more particularly Surmesur. The idea of offering his clients a unique experience and project fascinates him.
He entered the Montreal Surmesur store in November 2014 with the dream of occupying a position with responsibility and developing the company’s brand image in the market.
His patience and empathy won over his fellow ‘Surmesurians’ and today he is responsible for the Montreal and Laval boutiques. His ongoing mission is to increase the ‘wow’ effect for every client who enters the stores. No one doubts that he will succeed.
