NEW YORK: GCI Group has named Robert Valdmanis president of GCI Canada. He replaces Nancy Croitoru, who left to become CEO of the Food and Consumer Products Manufacturers of Canada.
Valdmanis was most recently a principal at the New York-based Dilenschneider Group, specializing in IR, corporate communications, and litigation PR. Earlier in his career, he was a partner at GGA Communications, based in Montreal.
He will work out of the agency's Toronto office, and will also oversee GCI's Montreal operations.
"I am looking forward to bridging the power of our Canadian presence with the strength of GCI's global network," Valdmanis said in a prepared statement.
