Thomas Lecordier joins Ogilvy Montreal

The Quebec agency's new VP of strategic planning and integration brings digital experience to help the agency better develop its offerings.

After a nearly three-year stint in France, Thomas Lecordier has returned to Canada. And his first stop is Ogilvy Montréal.

The new VP of strategic planning and integration at the Quebec agency was recently appointed by Daniel Demers, president of Ogilvy Montréal. The role was created specifically for Lecordier.

Lecordier brings a wealth of experience in digital integration, which he acquired while working at Leo Burnett in France. He’s worked on both client and agency side, spending a couple years at Air France as its senior manager of advertising in the earlier days of his career. And he’s also held a number of positions at communications agency Publicis, including executive VP, strategic planning.

“He’s a great catch for us and our clients,” said Demers in a release. “His arrival represents a new stage in our digital growth and in the overall development of the agency.”
