As U.Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Lena Trudeau is the chief champion of putting you first. Responsible for ensuring our team is delivering impactful solutions, strengthening our capabilities, and establishing a powerful culture of collaboration—it’s all in service of solving the problems that matter most.
Throughout her career, Lena’s gained a reputation for thinking big and working tirelessly to build something better than what currently exists. From spearheading the creation of 18F, an in-house digital services team at the US General Services Administration (GSA), to bringing a similar model to the Canadian Digital Service (CDS) in her role as CEO of Nuage Strategies, Lena was an early advocate for government modernization, digital adoption, and digital inclusion. Her deep understanding of complex policy and regulatory environments was also tapped in the private sector as she led the Amazon Web Services Public Sector (AWS PS) global expansion. In that role, Lena worked closely with numerous government and business leaders around the world. She then led AWS PS business in Canada through a time of tremendous growth.
And now, she’s bringing her unique expertise and unrelenting drive to U.Group with the goal of helping you—our customers, clients, and partners—confront your most pressing challenges.
With years of leadership experience to guide her, Lena is excited to combine the power of technology with the force of creativity to forge a new path forward for U.Group and our customers.
