As a distinguished cardiovascular surgeon, Member of the National Assembly, and Director of Public Health at Hôpital Charles LeMoyne, Régent Beaudet was forever expanding his scope of interests and skills. In 1981, he joined forces with a handful of investors to acquire the famed Lachute Golf Club, then proceeded to acquire Le St-André in 1986 and Le Chantecler in 2000.
Members of the Beaudet family joined the employee rolls: Jean-René, oldest son of Régent Beaudet, became Director General of Le St-André Golf Club in 1988 and of Le Lachute in 1995. He has occupied the position of Vice-President of Operations since 2002, while Sylvain Beaudet, the youngest in the family, took on the position of Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. As they gradually began to specialize in golf course management, the Beaudet family became sole shareholder of the company, and in 2002, the Groupe Beaudet was born.
