Serge Goulet, president
A graduate from the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières in Finance, Mr. Serge Goulet has been involved in the world of real estate development since 1988.
Mr. Goulet, and Jean-François Breton, founded GPG Devimco during the 1990s. Over the last fifteen years, Devimco has developed projects that account for more than $900 million in investments in the province of Quebec. The company started in the Quebec City area and then moved its activities to the Montreal region and the Eastern Townships. Devimco and its founders’ expertise in terms of commercial and mixed-use development is now well established in the real estate community.
In 2012, following the departure of his associate, Serge Goulet transformed Devimco into Devimco Immobilier and gave the company two distinct orientations: Devimco Investissement and Devimco Habitation. In the wake of this repositioning, the company welcomed Mathieu Jobin as Managing Partner.
Devimco Immobilier’s field of expertise is in the development of high density, mix-use projects in urban settings or on the outskirts of major cities. In 2014, Devimco Immobilier’s main projects are District Griffin in Montreal (which launched the revival of Griffintown) and the continuation of Quartier DIX30 in Brossard.
Serge Goulet also likes to get involved and give back to the community. Since 2006, he has been honorary president of the Fondation des comités d’entraide de Brossard. Thanks to his continuous collaboration, the foundation raised over $750,000 for people in need.

Mathieu Jobin is the General Director, and Partner with Serge Goulet at Devimco Immobilier Inc. A graduate of the Faculty of Law at Université Laval, Mathieu Jobin was called to the Barreau du Québec in 1997. He started his practice in 1997 in a private law firm in Quebec City, where he focused on commercial law, real estate law, transactional law and financing. In 2003, Mr. Jobin decided to join his major client, Devimco Inc., as Director of their Legal Department. At the time, Serge Goulet and Jean-François Breton were managing the company. Between then and the creation of Devimco Immobilier Inc. in 2012, Mr. Jobin contributed to the development of many mega centres in Quebec City, Laval, and Bromont with Devimco. He was also a key player in the creation of Quartier DIX30 in Brossard and District Griffin in Montreal.
Developing innovative projects and creating unique living environments
That is what Devimco’s collaborators get to do each day. Some of these young entrepreneurs practice real-estate law and specialize in the fields of finances, business transactions, partnerships and construction. Others are experts in financial accounting, corporate taxation and budgeting or have substantial experience in construction.
For them, everyday represents a new challenge, full of adrenaline.
