Jack Benzaquen has a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the École Polytechnique and an MBA from the HEC Montreal. For the first seven years of his career, he was project engineer at GoodYear Canada and Johnson & Johnson.
In 1991, Benzaquen was hired as Director of Technical Services at the Jewish General Hospital, where he oversaw 500 employees. His achievements were recognized by the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Montréal who named him 'Jeune cadre du Québec' in 1995, and in the following year, the HEC honoured him with an achievement award.
In 2000, he was appointed City Manager of the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, a city in the West Island of Montreal which has a population of 50,000. In 2002, he became Manager of the Borough of Dollard-des-Ormeaux/Roxboro, within the new City of Montreal. In 2006, the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux demerged and once again, Benzaquen was named City Manager, a position he has held since then.
President since May 2011, he is actively involved with the Association des Directeurs Généraux des Municipalités du Québec (ADGMQ).
