Myrianne CollinSenior vice president, operations, marketing & customer experience
“A brand and its customer are like a couple. You can bring flowers but it won’t mean much if you act cold and distant. The customer experience has to be positive across the board. You have to cultivate it if you want to have a long-term, faithful relationship.”
Michel GrangerVice president, concerts & creative content
“I draw my energy and my sense of pride from the magic of the performance and the energy of the audience drinking in the show we spent months putting together. As long as I can remember, that vitality has driven me forward.”
Yves Cinq-MarsExecutive director, sales
“Gotta move! The great thing about sports and showbiz is that there’s no routine. Sales are my passion. Ushering a new event into the world, developing a marketing plan and then going out into the marketplace and selling it is always exciting for me.”
