The story of Philippe II and Nan-B de Gaspé Beaubien


We saw him in the documentary Expo 67 Mission Impossible. We discovered an inspiring manager who, thanks to his bold vision and powers of persuasion, managed to achieve the impossible. Following this foundational experience, Philippe de Gaspé Beaubien went on to build a media empire: Telemedia. In his wife, Nan-b, he found an extraordinary partner, his perfect match in work and life. A committed philanthropist and son of a renowned family of entrepreneurs, he has passed on to his children and grandchildren the values and know-how he inherited.
