Appointed to the A2C

The A2C is thrilled to announce that two new administrators have been appointed to its Board of Directors: Manon Goudreault, President of dada communications and Aurélie Pinceloup, General Manager at Agence Rinaldi.
“It is with great pride that I join the Board of Directors of the A2C. Our presence clearly demonstrates that small and large agencies can sit at the same table to discuss common issues. While the advertising industry is prosperous and essential to Quebec’s economy, it has yet to be recognized as such. Beyond the borders of every single agency, the industry deserves to be acknowledged for its real and tangible positive impact. In addition, regardless of their size, agencies are currently experiencing challenges in attracting and retaining qualified resources. I, as a member of the board, intend to defend and invest myself in those two different issues. To have a significant contribution, not only for dada, but for our industry as a whole. ” said Manon Goudreault.
