One of Canada’s most dynamic public relations professionals, Suzanne Cohon has built ASC Public Relations into one of this country’s most respected communications firms in less than 10 years.
A native New Yorker with vast experience as a senior executive in media sales, her start in Canada was to help create and build Toronto’s Spoke Club, a prestigious private club for arts and business leaders. In 2005 Suzanne founded ASC with a partner. She has been the sole proprietor since 2011.
There is no doubt that ASC is a reflection of its owner’s personality. Suzanne and her team are high energy, enthusiastic, optimistic and fast moving, qualities appreciated by both the Canadian media and the agency’s international, and often NYC-based, clients.
For Suzanne, business and community work together. She’s taken her leadership abilities to the community as Chair of Toronto’s much heralded Ronald McDonald House Opening Gala and Co-Chair of the Ontario Science Centre’s Innovators Ball. She was also a member of the Board of Directors at the prestigious Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery.
A constant champion of women’s advancement, Suzanne is an active mentor to at-risk girls, providing them with educational and career counseling.
