CALGARY—Cohn & Wolfe | Canada has opened a Calgary office with the acquisition of a majority interest in Extend Marketing, a full-service marketing and communications firm that focuses on community relations and community investment. Extend’s founders— Ceilidh Price, Trevor Beckman and Robb Price—remain partners in the firm and will continue to lead its operations. Extend will operate under the Cohn & Wolfe name.
