DELMAR’S MATHIEU DARCHE AND HIS BROTHER JP INDUCTED INTO McGILL UNIVERSITY SPORTS HALL OF FAME

MONTRÉAL, OCTOBER 23, 2015 – Delmar International Inc. wishes to congratulate Mathieu Darche and his brother Jean Philippe (JP) on being inducted on October 22 into the McGill University Sports Hall of Fame.

Mathieu has been with Delmar, the largest privately held freight forwarder in Canada, or two years now. Soon after retiring from the National Hockey League after a 13 year professional career, he was hired as Director of Business Development and Public Relations. A year later he took over the direction of the company’s Quebec sales force.

Mathieu was a star for the McGill Redmen before embarking upon his pro hockey career. He played for five NHL teams: Columbus, Nashville, San Jose, Tampa Bay and finally his hometown Montreal Canadiens. He earned a degree in marketing and international business at McGill.
JP enjoyed a successful professional football career, following five years at McGill. He played for the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL and the Seattle Seahawks and the Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL.

“JP has recently completed his medical degree and lives in Kansas City while Mathieu is now an integral part of our executive group within the Delmar family,” stated Michael Wagen, Senior Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Delmar. “We extend our congratulations to both Mathieu and JP for their outstanding academic and unprecedented athletic achievements. We are very proud of both of them.”
In his acceptance speech Mathieu recognized how valuable his university degree was to fall back on when he decided to become a professional hockey career after graduating from McGill. “If I did not have that degree, I do not know if I’d have this job at Delmar,” he told the audience at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

Both Mathieu and his brother JP credited their parents for instilling the importance of a good education, even while they played at the elite level in their chosen sports at McGill. “Our parents always reminded us that school comes first,” said JP. “Now that I have kids, I realize why they said that.”
