Contributing to the progress of our member entrepreneurs and their business vision is my top priority."
"lg2 is internationally recognized in our industry for putting creativity and innovation to work for its agency and clients. Claude's passion for leading the charge and his ability to reinvent our businesses are qualities our board needs to pursue our goal of becoming the world's most valuable marketing agency network," said John Harris, President and CEO, WPI.
lg2’s seat at the international table where major industry issues are discussed gives it yet another vantage point on the world, plus a stimulating source of knowledge and expertise from around the world. For lg2, independent agencies sharing their values of cooperation, caring and agility fully supports its people and clients’ business trajectories.
