Cossette Communications, as recently announced, will be run in Canada by CEO Melanie Dunn. Marchand will continue as North American CEO and Chairman of Cossette. In addition to Dunn, Valerie Swatkow, SVP National Account Leader on the McDonald’s business in Canada, assumes a new role as EVP Client Leadership with primary responsibility for McDonald’s in Canada and the US, as well as a strategic role in delivering against the Vision7 strategic pillar of “Successful Clients.” Swatkow reports to Marchand.

BlueFocus Reportedly In Talks To Acquire Vision 7

BlueFocus Communication Group Co., Ltd. (SZSE:300058) is in talks to buy Vision 7 International Ulc, reported The Globe and Mail citing sources. Greg Paull, Principal at R3 Worldwide, which has been advising BlueFocus on acquisition targets, said, "They’re looking very closely at Cossette." Paull said, "They want to become a global holding group in the spirit of Dentsu [Inc.] and WPP [Group PLC]." Mill Road confirmed this summer that it has decided to explore strategic alternatives for [Vision7’s] North American assets. It is unclear whether the entirety of the company’s assets would be included in a possible deal. Adweek pegged the value of the acquisition at $220 million, citing unnamed sources. Brett Marchand, Chief Executive Officer of Vision 7, declined to comment on the possibility of a deal with Blue Focus. Holly Zheng, President of BlueFocus, when asked about Vision 7, said, "That particular name, we probably won’t be able to comment until anything gets concrete."
