Alain Gauthier, Montreal Canadiens
Executive vice president and general manager, facilities operations
Gauthier runs the show for the Canadiens at Bell Centre, one of the NHL’s marquee venues. He’s also in charge of building operations at the Bell Sports Complex, the team’s practice facility, plus Bell Place, a 10,000-seat arena that opens this fall in suburban Montreal as the new home of the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate. Gauthier has been employed with the Canadiens since 1987 at the old Montreal Forum.
