Durnan to depart Cossette Toronto
Bill Durnan is set to depart Cossette. He most recently held the position of convergent creative director at the agency's Toronto office. He has also been the interim president of the company and president of Nucleus, its strategic planning division. Durnan joined Cossette nine years ago as a senior strategic consultant. His departure has been planned for a year, during which time he shifted responsibility for the agency's creative department to Pete Breton and Dave Douglass, now co-creative directors of the Toronto office. Durnan will now become part of a new brand consulting company called JDS in association with retail brand strategist Joe Jackman and research specialist David Saffer.
