Tennis Canada announced Friday that Sebastien LeBlanc was elected to the Tennis Canada Board of Directors at the most recent Annual General Meeting.
“We are so pleased to have Sebastien join our board at this very exciting time for tennis in Canada,” said Derrick Rowe, Chair of the Board. “Sebastien brings a wealth of tennis knowledge from being a world-class junior, a professional player, and an active organizer and supporter of tennis today.”
LeBlanc was one of Canada’s top players in the 1990s. As a junior, he captured the country’s first-ever Grand Slam titles alongside fellow Canadian Sebastien Lareau, winning the doubles crowns at the 1990 Junior French Open and Junior Wimbledon. A six-foot-four lefty, LeBlanc also played for Canada in Davis Cup and at the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games. Since retiring from tennis, he has remained in the sport and is one of the organizers of the longstanding Coupe Le Blanc, an under-12 international tournament.
He has worked at COTE 100, a firm specializing in portfolio management, since 1997. He became a shareholder in the company in 2010 and today is a partner, head of operations, and head of business development. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and Université du Quebec à Montreal (UQAM).
LeBlanc joins a Board that includes 12 incumbent members: Derrick Rowe, John LeBoutillier, Hart Pollack, Penny Ballem, Sam Sebastian, Marc Bibeau, Jennifer Bishop, Hector MacKay-Dunn, Stephen Mandel, Nadir Mohamed, Mike Tevlin, and Jack Graham.
