“Given Anne-Claude’s remarkable career at Cossette and her numerous achievements along the way, this new role was hers for the taking. Her consistent progress within the agency over the past 20 years is a source of great pride for us. And she truly embodies the agency’s values and culture,” explained Louis Duchesne, President, Cossette Québec and East. “Our creative community in Québec is experiencing rapid growth, and it’s vital for us to maintain local leadership for our teams and clients.”
With this appointment, Cossette is implementing a co-leadership model to oversee creation within the agency in Québec. Anne-Claude will be sharing this responsibility with Louis-Philippe Tremblay, who’s been in this role since last fall.

“The creative realm is where I live and breathe, because it demands that we reinvent ourselves every day—and that’s no easy feat. But one thing that’s non-negotiable is that we have fun and get up to a bit of mischief in the process,” said Anne-Claude. “I believe that this appointment sends a clear message about the importance of creativity at Cossette. We’re on a streak. Our team is stronger than ever, and we’ve got amazing clients for whom we can find fresh creative brand solutions for complex issues—to the benefit of our clients and consumers alike.”
