Daniel Lamarre is a French Canadian whose talent for leading creative companies became evident during his two decades at Cirque du Soleil. As President and Chief Executive Officer, and now Executive Vice-Chairman of the Board, he guided the organization through a period of astounding growth and then brought it back to life during the massive upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic. When Lamarre joined in 2001 as president of new ventures, Cirque du Soleil had 2,000 employees and seven shows in performance. Five years later, he became Chief Executive and the company grew to 5,000 employees and 44 shows around the world (including recent subsidiary acquisitions). At its peak, Cirque du Soleil had annual sales of $1 billion, profit margins of 20 (EBITDA), and 15 million people attending its shows per year, more than all 39 Broadway shows combined.
