Susan Kudzman, who heads the HR and compensation committees at Transat AT, has been appointed chair of the board of directors at the holiday travel provider.

She has been a member of Transat’s board of directors since March 2014. She has served for several years on the risk management and corporate responsibility committee, and is also chair of the board of directors of Yellow Pages on which she has held a seat since November 2014. In addition to that, she sits on the boards of Medavie and PSP Investments.

Outgoing president Raymond Bachand said the board and the company are in good hands with Kudzman and new CEO Annick Guérard.

“I leave knowing that the board and Transat are in good hands under the leadership of Annick Guérard and the governance of Susan Kudzman. Susan has played an important role in guiding strategy and human resources, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as overseeing and managing the risks facing the Corporation,” said Bachand. “She has been and will continue to be a valuable contributor. I am confident she will be an excellent board chair and will continue to advise with great competence Transat’s executive committee. Transat’s future remains promising thanks to the strength, resilience, and expertise of the teams at all levels of the corporation.”


Founded in Montreal 35 years ago, Transat has achieved worldwide recognition as a holiday travel provider, particularly as an airline under the Air Transat brand. Voted World’s Best Leisure Airline in North America by passengers at the 2022 Skytrax World Airline Awards, it flies to international, U.S. and Canadian destinations.
