TC Media announced the appointment of Pierre Marcoux to the position of senior vice president, business information solutions and education. In this capacity, Mr. Marcoux is responsible for overseeing the development and execution of growth strategies and driving operating results for trade media (B2B) and information services, as well as for educational resource and book publishing. He continues to report directly to Ted Markle, president of TC Media, and to sit on the sector's Senior Management Committee.
Mr. Marcoux took on his new responsibilities a few months ago, when TC Media decided to combine these core segments into a single business group. Since then he has been heading this new group in addition to assuming interim responsibility for Consumer Solutions, a group he had been running since 2009.
"Pierre has played a crucial role in optimizing our consumer brand portfolio over the past several years, while driving the development of our flagship brands and protecting the group's competitive edge" said Mr. Markle. "I was confident that Pierre was the perfect leader to take on this new role focused on promoting the growth and development of our Business Information Solutions and Education group across Canada."
"I am pleased to be at the helm of this new group and to be working with the existing teams on building a global growth strategy aimed at broadening our footprint nationally in these promising key business segments for TC Media" added Mr. Marcoux. "For the past few months, I've been able to rely on talented leaders to optimize the full potential of our trade media, our education and book publishing divisions, and their digital strategy."
