MONTREAL AND TORONTO, July 31, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - TC Media is pleased to announce 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. With the appointment of Carlos Lamadrid to the
position of Senior Vice President Consumer Solutions announced yesterday, Mr. Marcoux will now be able to complete the transition and focus
solely on his new duties.
"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
Ted Markle, president of TC Media. "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 Pierre Marcoux, Senior Vice President,
Business Information Solutions and Education. "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".
The brand portfolio under Pierre Marcoux's responsibility includes Les Affaires, with its strategic Grandes conférences series and events division, A+, Premium, Investment Executive, Finance et Investissement, their companion websites, as well as the Aquizition.biz service site. Assets of the Constructo group are also under his leadership. In addition, Mr. Marcoux heads the
education publishing and book publishing operations, which include
Chenelière Éducation, Les Éditions Transcontinental, Les Éditions
Caractère and Groupe Modulo.
Finally, in this new role, Mr. Marcoux will continue to map out a clear
path for the tablet strategy, for all of TC Media's brands and content.
