Oh Canada! Cossette Communications Posts A Profit

By SuperSpy 

Perhaps, you’ve forgotten about Cossette Communications? And perhaps, that’s because you don’t live in Canada where the shop is always in the news. It’s possible, but this year the agency is attempting to up its Stateside profile.

Today, Cossette Communication Group released their year end fiscal results. The shop is up with net earnings at $8.9 million and gross income of $253.3 million. That’s an increase of 8.2 per cent from $234.1 million in fiscal year 2007.

“Despite the challenging environment that we faced, over the past year we recorded the highest revenues in Cossette’s history,” said Claude Lessard, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President.

Now, we’re sure that very little of that had anything to do with their Stateside office. In October, the shop pinched Bill Oberlander from McCann to fill their CCO role. The shop then quickly picked up the Waterford Crystal account and now, it’s a waiting game. Still under their auspice is the Coast Guard and McGraw-Hill. Will Bill be able to finally put the shop back into American headlines with some big wins? We shall see.
