Christian Quenneville

Partner, Vice-President Business Development at SID LEE
Montreal, Canada

Summary

I’m a digital native who looks at everything through that lens. Timing is everything and having graduated in 96’, I’ve managed digital integration since its early days within full service agencies including McCann, Ogilvy, Cossette and Taxi. I made a leap into a dedicated digital business in 2008 at Nurun.
I’ve been fortunate to work with and lead some of the best in this industry. My career path has taken me from roles such as Account Management, Strategic Planning to General Management. My leadership style has been described as inclusive, transparent, and passionate. Oh that and sometimes a pain in the butt.
I am currently Partner & Vice-President, New Business at Sid Lee, one of the best performing agencies in the world according to Forbes. We are a global creative team of 650 professionals crafting innovative consumer experiences to drive value for top-tier brands. In other words, we kick ass and we’re growing, so hit us up if you need a hand.
I’m a Quebecker schooled in Ontario, and I’ve worked in Toronto, Montreal and New York. I currently call Montreal home, because it's a great city and; skiing and mountain biking are only 40 minutes away.
