It has been an interesting year for NATIONAL Public Relations, they have been forced to adjust their business due to a number of senior management exits such as here, here, and here. The firm has also let go of a few of its team members this year. The latest change for NATIONAL Public Relations comes from its Montreal office as the parent company – RES PUBLICA Consulting Group announced Cohn & Wolfe Montreal, will fold into NATIONAL Public Relations.
“When we did our annual business analysis of both firms, we concluded that both talent and client bases were complementary.

Current Managing Partner for Cohn & Wolfe André Bouthillier, will become part of NATIONAL as an Executive Vice-President.
