Richard Caron has more than twenty-five years of experience in different sectors of the marketing world. A fine strategist and a high-level marketing and advertising professional, he shows leadership marked by his ability to rally teams and converge their efforts towards a common goal.
Perfectly bilingual and very familiar with the Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, Atlantic Canada markets and several markets of the United States, he has contributed to the growth of leading brands in various industries (retail, restaurant, e-comm as well as the advertising agency world) such as Aubainerie, McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada, Cora Restaurants, St-Hubert Restaurants, KFC, JUPA Sports, Graphics Workshop and the SportHawk International Airlines.
