She first joined the Global Procurement group and then went on to hold increasingly senior positions within the Company’s Hydro East business unit. Dumas implemented effective sourcing strategies and managed various projects for the business unit before being named Vice-President, Operations, Hydro East, in 2010. In that role, she was responsible for the successful execution of projects carried out by Hydro East worldwide, including Matala in Angola, Smoky Falls in Ontario and Romaine 2 in Quebec.
