MONTREAL, Feb. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Technicolor Creative Services recently
appointed Pierre Moreau as the company's executive vice-president. In his new
position, Mr. Moreau will be responsible for all of Technicolor Creative
Services' activities in Canada.
According to Mr. Moreau, the major courses of action over the next few
months will be to "make the client our main focus, mobilize the sales force,
centralize market intelligence, refine our practices and personalize our offer
based on our clients' current and future needs." He adds that "the strength of
the team will be a major asset in accomplishing these objectives. I am taking
on this mandate with enthusiasm and am renewing Technicolor's commitment to
serving its clients efficiently in a courteous and friendly work environment."
As for the information on Technicolor that has been circulated recently,
Mr. Moreau wishes to make it clear that Thomson decided to refocus its efforts
on content developer services, and Technicolor is the cornerstone of this
restructuring. "It is good news, actually!" he exclaimed.
Originally a floor sound director at Covitec, Pierre Moreau became sales
director for Québec when the Montréal company was acquired by Technicolor in
November 2000. His career path within the organization led him to hold the
position of vice-president, director general of Technicolor Creative Services
in Québec, a position he held until his recent appointment. Mr. Moreau
officially took over his new position on February 2.
Founded in 1915, Technicolor gained its reputation thanks to the

expanded its activities and vision. Today, it is a leading partner of content
developers in the entertainment, gaming and software industries. Technicolor
offers a full range of media and dubbing services for distribution, including
