Montreal, November 17, 2020 – Camden has announced several strategic hires and promotions at its Montreal headquarters. Building on the success of its Toronto office, which just marked its third anniversary with several new projects and a new space, plus recent major new accounts at its Lyon office, these hires come at a pivotal time for Camden. The agency is preparing to expand into new territories and further solidify its position as an independent, international network with a local presence in key markets.
Five new faces in Montreal
Pierre-Luc Langlois (ex-Bâton Rouge, SAQ, Tank) brings a rich background in pharmaceutical, retail and food marketing to Camden’s client services team as Account Director.

Diana Yambaye (ex-Fido) joins the organization as Coordinator and will support the client services team, while Stéfanie Simard begins her career at Camden as a Graphic Designer.
