Cossette Restructures Up North

Quebec City-based Cossette Communications, once home to creatives like Bill Oberlander, is undergoing a change of sorts as Marketing reports that the agency (to still be led by CEO/president Brett Marchand) is one of two divisions that will be housed under a new umbrella firm called Vision7 International.

According to the trade:

“Second Vision7 division is called Esprit de Corps Communications, and represents the international arm of the new holding company. Led by former EVP of Cossette West Colin Schleining in North America and former COO of Cossette UK Gregor Angus in the U.K., Esprit de Corps is a collection of individual agencies in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., including PR firms Paine (U.S.), Optimum (Canada) and Band and Brown (UK), digital agency Dare, social media agency Rocket XL and activation shop Elvis.”
