Industry veteran Anne Marsolais has been named vice-president of Weber Shandwick, effective immediately. She will be based in the firm’s Montreal office.

Marsolais, who has over 13 years of experience in corporate, financial and marketing communications, will “contribute to the development and expansion of Weber Shandwick in Montreal and across Canada,” according to a release.

“The quality of the leadership, the firm’s unique culture and service model, and the scope of its client base convinced me that Weber Shandwick was the right destination for the next phase of my career,” said Masolais, in a release.

Marsolais spent the past 10 years as a senior communications executive at Yellow Pages Group/Yellow Media, where she contributed to company projects including the acquisition of Superpages in 2005 and the Yellow Pages rebrand in 2010. Prior to that, she worked at Fleishman-Hillard.

She will report to François Taschereau, executive vice-president and general manager of the firm’s Montreal and Ottawa offices.

“Annie’s stellar reputation and experience will further strengthen our depth in corporate and financial communications and accelerate the development of our presence in the Québec market,” said Taschereau, in a release. “Montreal is a critical piece of our global network and a priority growth area for our firm.”
