Paulette Kaci, Executive Director

Improving individual skills and organization performance motivates this great manager with more than 20 years’ management experience. Her curiosity and entrepreneurial spirit have often led her to choose challenges within start-up or restructuring organizations. 

In 2011, Paulette was appointed by Cégep Marie Victorin as the first Vestechpro Director General. As soon as the organization was established, she surrounded herself with a solid team of professionals from the fashion and apparel industry. Paulette was quickly able to position Vestechpro as an essential research center for the Quebec apparel industry and help it expand across the country and elsewhere in the world. 

Having received a master’s degree in education from Université de Sherbrooke, her mission has been to establish Vestechpro as a leader in the technology transfer field applied to the apparel industry.
