TORONTO—Cohn & Wolfe Canada has acquired Courtney Rainey Group and integrated its 13 employees with the 55 employees of Cohn & Wolfe’s Toronto office. The new organization will offer clients of both firms access to an enhanced team of public relations professionals and broader array of communications services and will operate under the Cohn & Wolfe name. Founded as Courtney Public Relations in 1999 by Susanne Courtney, the acquired firm became Courtney Rainey Group in 2002, one year after Sharon Rainey joined as partner. The merger will see Susanne Courtney and Sharon Rainey become senior vice-presidents of Cohn & Wolfe and members of the management team led by Panasiuk. “Our common commitment to senior, hands-on counsel, in-depth sectoral expertise, creativity and cultural fit is what makes this such a great move for both firms,” says Susanne Courtney. “Our team is looking forward to integrating with a more fully resourced organization and our clients will benefit from an enhanced offering, including the same high quality service Courtney Rainey Group has always delivered.” In October 2006, Cohn & Wolfe Canada acquired Extend Communications in Calgary. With the acquisition of Courtney Rainey, Cohn & Wolfe Canada now has 85 employees in its Toronto, Montreal and Calgary offices.
