Heartfelt Appreciation for CASACOM’s Successful 12th Year!

Last week, we felt the need to pause, which, admittedly, happens very little in the dynamic world of public relations. This gave us the opportunity to reflect on the journey of our communications firm and its very successful and positive 12th year of existence.

This is a moment to express our gratitude to the CASACOM clients in Quebec, Canada and the United States who have entrusted us with their fascinating projects, from corporate communications, marketing communications, branding, public affairs or media relations. We are extremely grateful for the trust and confidence shown to our firm year after year, which has contributed to our growth over the past 12 years.

Among the top Canadian Firms

CASACOM continues to grow and establish itself as a leader in the public relations industry in Quebec and Canada. This year, we placed second on the annual ranking of Quebec public relations firms of Infopresse. In addition, two years ago, CASACOM established an office in Toronto, and will expand to larger quarters in the near future. Our firm has also been selected by the Ontario government to be part of a very small pool of firms allowed to bid on public mandates.

Recognition by Our Peers

We are very humbled by the North American-wide recognition from our industry colleagues. First, in June, in New York, CASACOM won the Silver Anvil Award from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) for our work on the iögo yogurt brand.  CASACOM was the only Canadian firm among the 800 finalists to win this prestigious award.  We also received an Award of Excellence from the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) in June.

CPRS also recognized our work in the area of marketing communications to introduce Michaels Arts & Crafts stores in Quebec.  We also received a Platinum Award from the Quebec Society of Professional Public Relations (SQPRP).

And last but not least, our Montreal-Toronto Citybook, our employee-recommended end-of-year gift that we offered to all CASACOM clients, received two Greniers d’Or last December.

The 12th anniversary of CASACOM is also the anniversary of a vision: our President’s vision, Marie-Josée Gagnon, who began to build a “house of communications” on September 11, 2001. Since then, she has constantly shared her passion for public relations and her pursuit of elevating our profession, as evidenced by the article published last week in Marketing Magazine. And as she often reminds us, with 12 years of age, we are just learning how to fly.  The best is yet to come!
