David Gordon

Managing Partner, Toronto

Ideas that matter

A believer in challenging convention, David has spent much of the past 20 years identifying communication strategies that don’t fit the mould. As the leader of our Toronto team, he takes pride in encouraging provocative thinking throughout Cohn & Wolfe and encouraging purposeful strategies that help clients stand out from the herd.

With a background in public policy and political strategy gained from a decade spent working on all sides of government in Ontario, combined with an MA and MBA, David is a strong believer in being an engaged member of the community and serves on the Boards of a number of non-profit organizations, including his current position as Chair of the Canadian Council of Public Relations Firms.

Bold brand work

David has worked with clients ranging from Sleeman Breweries to Nintendo, Nissan and Citibank among many others, and is comfortable dealing with a broad range of issues from crisis management and brand marketing to regulatory and government affairs.

David has also done considerable work in the areas of issue and crisis management, and has acted as the global account manager for an international team responsible for the restructuring of a client’s European manufacturing operation.

Creative highlight

For David, creativity is often closely aligned with fearlessness – the willingness to provide counsel and put forward strategies that might not always be readily accepted, but are always supported by strategic fundamentals.

David has been recognized by his peers across North America for the successful delivery of communication programs on behalf of a wide range of clients, including Bata International, Upper Canada Breweries, Deloitte and Credit Valley Conservation.
