This appointment supersedes the departure of former President Mr. Vincent Bernier, who successful drove the development of The Quebec City Kebs professional basketball club for the past three years.  This year however Mr. Bernier says "It is with great sadness that I announced to the Board of Directors my decision to step down as President. I wanted to ensure that they had ample time to find a replacement before the start of the 2010 season." He then goes on to add "My professional activities are requiring an increasing amount of travel to the United Sates and South America from me. It would have been impossible for me to give The Kebs the appropriate amount of time and attention required. I am very proud of all that we have accomplished in the past three years under my presidency and I have learnt a lot from my experience in running a professional sports organization in The Québec Region." Mr. Bernier has been an Executive member of The Kebs for the past four years and will remain on the Board of Directors.

"I am grateful to Vincent for his active involvement and the time he has devoted to the club. His experience in the development of the team and the sport in The Region of Québec is an invaluable asset. I am delighted that he has agreed to remain on the Board of Directors."
