Cohn & Wolfe, National merge in Montreal
Res Publica Consulting Group has merged the Montreal offices of its subsidiaries Cohn & Wolfe and National Public Relations. The staff of Cohn & Wolfe Montreal will move into the offices of National in that city. André Bouthillier, managing partner of Cohn & Wolfe Montreal, will become an executive vice-president at National. The other Canadian offices of Cohn & Wolfe are not affected by this merger and will continue to operate as part of the international Cohn & Wolfe organization.
"When we did our annual business analysis of both firms, we concluded that both talent and client bases were complementary," said Jean-Pierre Vasseur, president and CEO of Res Publica. "Integrating Cohn & Wolfe into National in Montreal made business sense, in addition to extending our service offering for the benefit of clients."
