He is the chairman and founder of DIRECTION Strategic Communications and Mesure Média.

A communications professional since 1976, Pierre founded his own public relations firm in 1994.

Both meticulous and curious, Pierre is a born collaborator with an entrepreneurial vision that stresses professionalism and quality relationships with clients—no doubt a key reason for their loyalty.

From clear and realistic goals, we propose effective strategies.

Pierre has been an accredited public relations practitioner (APR) since 1995 and is a founding member and the current president (2013–2015) of ACRPQ, the Alliance of Quebec Public Relations Firms. He has also served as a representative on Quebec’s communications industry council (CICQ) since 2007.

In the course of his career, Pierre has worked as a broadcast and print journalist (1976 to 1984), an advisor to a Quebec government minister (1984 to 1985), a consultant with three public relations firms (1986 to 1994), and a lecturer and guest speaker in Quebec and abroad (since 2001).

Pierre won the Gold award in the global campaign category at the Société québécoise des professionnels en relations publiques (SQPRP) awards in 2009 and chaired the event in 2011.

Since 2010, he has regularly published articles on a variety of communications issues in the “blog” section of this site.
