KPMG Can Now Say It Has a Canada’s Sports Hall of Famer Among Its Ranks

Two-time Olympic gold medal-winning freestyle skier-turned-KPMGer Alex Bilodeau is one of eight people who will be inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame this year.

He’s with some pretty impressive company, as the 2019 class also includes three-time Stanley Cup champion goalie Martin “Uncle Daddy” Brodeur and four-time Olympic gold medal-winning Canadian women’s hockey player Jayna Hefford.

Bilodeau, whose old man is a longtime tax partner at KPMG in Montreal, is just another dude in a shirt and tie these days. And his younger co-workers seem to have no idea that he is the Alex Bilodeau who kicked ass on the moguls in 2010 and 2014.

Alex Bilodeau’s day job consists of spreadsheets and numbers.

The 31-year-old from Rosemere, Que., is just embarking on his financial career as a Chartered Professional Accountant for KPMG — a time consuming profession with long work weeks.

“I don’t do things halfway,” Bilodeau said with a grin.

As for Bilodeau’s co-workers…

“Today, they’re like, ‘Who are you? We need to talk,’” he said with a chuckle.
