MONTREAL, April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Ogilvy Montreal is pleased to announce the acquisition of Brad. With a presence in Quebec City and more than 175 employees, the agency becomes one of the largest in the province of Quebec.

Since its inception more than 20 years ago, Brad has earned a solid reputation in Quebec and across the country, serving a long list of provincial and national clients such as the Volvo Group, Fairmont Hotels, BRP, the Government of Quebec and Irving.  Recognized for its innovative ideas and efficient solutions, the agency has been rewarded for its creativity at Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and most recently at Créa 2018, Quebec’s premier award show, taking home six honours.

Martin Bernier will lead the Ogilvy office in Quebec City as President and Dany Renauld will contribute to the growth of the agency as President of Ogilvy Montreal. They will both report to David Aubert, who becomes CEO of Ogilvy Montreal and Ogilvy Quebec. Carle Coppens will team up with Etienne Bastien to lead the creative team in Quebec.

“The addition of Brad’s talent expands our presence in Quebec and our creative firepower across our national clients as Ogilvy’s next chapter continues to unfold,” said Laurie Young, CEO of Ogilvy Canada.

With 325+ employees in Toronto, Montreal and now Quebec City, Ogilvy becomes one of the 5 largest marketing communications agencies in Canada.
