The brother-sister duo, Mireille and Serge Bellavance, are the next-generation business leaders and co-owners of Urban Quarry, a family-operated company that specializes in customizing, fabricating, and installing Cambria Quartz Surfaces. As Vice President of Operations, Mireille oversees the company’s efficiency and is responsible for ensuring that the right technology and products are in place, in addition to handling a team of managers and leaders.
