We built ourselves a great line-up

Team and Careers

Orkestra: somewhere between a family, a cult and simply an incredible work team. Here, you take out the trash despite 20 years of experience and you have your say on projects even if you arrived yesterday. Taking ourselves too seriously, we leave that to others who take themselves for others. Interested?

Join the team
Colin Laramée-Plouffe

Colin Laramée-Plouffe

President of the Republic

Colin has been president of one thing or another since he was 11. From his lemonade stand to his teams of technicians to his side of the table at Christmas parties, he likes being president. Period. That drive is probably what gave him the confidence to build a small team (of which he’s president) and quintuple his sales in just two years.

Copresident / Associate
Alex Van Dieren

Alex Van Dieren

General of All Kinds of Stuff

Alex is a master of straight talk. In fact, if you don’t like hearing the truth, you may not take to Alex. On the other hand, that’s probably the quality that explains why, every year, dozens of companies rely on him to develop their campaigns and plan their events. It’s easy to see Alex has a good head on his shoulders—it positively gleams!

Copresident / Associate
Dominic Faucher

Dominic Faucher

Emperor of Concepts

Unconventional in every respect, Dominic still hasn’t quite grasped the limits of our society. He likes to explore them by deliberately (or accidentally) causing public discomfort that forces people to adopt a new point of view. Unlike some, he can tell the difference between efficiency and bullshit. That’s all it took to persuade us to put him at the head of our creative army.

Creative Director / Associate
Frédérique Dumont

Frédérique Dumont

Queen of Production

When Frédérique takes on a project, the first step is to ensure that everyone is up to the standard of her organizational skills and sense of priorities. She’s the kind of woman who, in just a couple of weeks, will know more about you than you do yourself. She manages our video production, and from near or far, pretty much anything that can be managed. And for that we are deeply grateful.

Manager, Video Department / Associate
Sacha Lauzier-Bonnette

Sacha Lauzier-Bonnette

Grand Creative Magus

Hold onto your hat: Sacha belongs to that rare class of young professionals who know what they’re talking about. Up to date on just about everything, he finds time to devour a book a day to get a solid grounding in the concepts he presents to agency clients. Unlike some who are content with creating beautiful things, Sacha creates beautiful things that are also precise, strategic and functional. Your mission when it comes to Sacha: Be on top of things in your field, because he certainly will be in his.

Creative Director / Associate
Amélie Gauvreau

Amélie Gauvreau

Classy Manager

Some people are born in an entrepreneurial environment. Amélie probably invented the word “entrepreneur”. Looking for strength of character and drive? No problem, we’ll set up a meeting with Ms. Gauvreau. Believe us, she represents our clients as a lawyer would: nothing gets past her. If you want to thank her, be advised that she has a fondness for bubbly.

Account Manager
Justine Penaud

Justine Penaud

Director of Foreign Affairs

It seems that every self-respecting agency has someone from France on their team. Not to boast or anything, but we snagged the best. Justine is a super marathoner, and she applies the same discipline and dedication to every project she manages. Don’t be fooled by her cute little accent. She has a real French personality, and that’s good for all our clients, because nothing goes out until Madame is happy with it. And Madame has very high standards.

Account Manager
David Julien

David Julien

Knight of the Brand

David is a quiet force at Orkestra. From within a loud and talkative team, he rises above the fray like a shining knight and hits the mark every time, especially in his innovative concepts for corporate branding. Actually, it’s almost as if your handyman uncle and your artist cousin were one and the same person.

Designer
Rémi Allen

Rémi Allen

Illustrator of Darkness

At first glance, he looks like the kind of biker who’d run over a litter of kittens without a backward glance, but deep down, he’s our sensitive artist. He just rides a Harley. Illustration, design, screen printing—the guy can handle just about anything. What’s important is talent and vision, never mind the tool you’re using. A family really suits you, Rémi.

Designer and Illustrator
Maxime Levesque

Maxime Levesque

Countess of Cyberspace

Maxime is the youngest and smallest member of our agency team. She’s also proof that you shouldn’t judge by appearances! She applies herself to her work with a maturity and creativity that quickly make you forget that she only recently got her driver’s licence. Passionate, you say? Put your devices in airplane mode, because she’s liable to send you creative flashes at all hours of the day or night. In fact, the only thing that will calm her down is an episode of Occupation Double.

Multimedia Designer
Jeannine Dederichs Gélinas

Jeannine Dederichs Gélinas

Mistress of Space

It doesn’t take long for people who don’t know Jeannine to embrace her (usually figuratively). A young artist of outstanding talent, at our agency she focuses on environmental design. She has the amazing ability to transform a warehouse into Disneyland, using two or three lights and a half-pint container of milk ... so imagine what she can do in a real work context. Jeannine is sure to surprise you, for many reasons.

Environmental Designer
Alex Tremblay

Alex Tremblay

Captain of Logistics

An event is stressful by definition, but it’s a lot less stressful when Alex is in charge. This isn’t his first rodeo: he’s managed the logistics team for events such as the Montebello Rockfest and the Navy Bike Ride. You read that right: he manages an event for the Royal Canadian Navy. We could go on, but we’ll let you judge for yourself when you meet him. Ah, and we apologize ahead of time for the puns.

Event Coordinator
Andréane Leblanc

Andréane Leblanc

Control Tower Operator

Once in a while, if you’re lucky, you run into a person with talent beyond their years. Andréane is in that prestigious category. You know how it is when you meet someone, and five minutes later you already trust them enough to lend them your cottage? Well, that’s why we’re confident about putting you in her hands.

Account Manager
Mariepier Bastien

Mariepier Bastien

Maestro of Social Media

Your posts aren’t getting any Likes? Your reach could be greater? Your shares, comments, feeds, stories, and all that other social media stuff could use some love? Mariepier will take care of all that. Besides being a Swiss army knife of event logistics, she’s our secret weapon in online community management. We’re still wondering where she finds time to study for her doctorate.

Communications Officer, Events
Marie-Pier Lauzon

Marie-Pier Lauzon

Viking Vigilante

Marie-Pier will go down in history for several reasons: her flaming red hair, her boundless love of dogs, and her organizational ability. That third point may be less hot, but for us it’s the most important. It explains why this slip of a woman is assigned to so many of our projects, and why she goes through to-do lists like a hot knife through butter. And there you have it.

Account Manager
Chantal Pagé

Chantal Pagé

Honourable Treasurer

You have to get up early to put one over on Chantale. Amidst our motley crew, she’s a solid and reassuring quasi-maternal presence. She ensures that everything is done according to the rules of our art. Yes, art … because we’re absolutely convinced that her Excel spreadsheets will end up in a museum one day.

Financial Controller
Guillaume Trottier

Guillaume Trottier

Strong Right Arm

Ah, Guillaume. Where to begin? He’s the kind of calm, quiet guy who takes the time to fully grasp the issues in any situation, both in the workplace and in the field. Then he channels his silence into a spreadsheet of people to call, things to buy, permits to apply for, rooms to reserve, and so on. You could almost remove the word “Assistant” from his title: Guillaume IS production.

Production Assistant
Mireille Giroux

Mireille Giroux

Grand Conductor

Mireille has a major challenge: acting as liaison between Alex and Colin to oversee the Beerfest project. Those who know Alex and Colin will tell you that’s no small task; on the other hand, those who know Mireille will tell you she succeeds brilliantly. In her, kindness and character combine in perfect proportions. Thank her if you can, because she’s the one organizing the best party in town.

Director of Operations
Geneviève Chevrier

Geneviève Chevrier

Minister of the Front Line

It’s important to have people who are actively involved in their workplace. That’s Geneviève. She’s involved in just about everything, especially our biggest events. She ensures that every detail is carried out according to best practices, as if it she herself had written those best practices. Because on top of everything else, Geneviève is a really good writer.

Communications Officer, Events
Jacinthe Grandmaître

Jacinthe Grandmaître

Diva of Events

Yes, it’s true: “Grandmaître” (“Grandmaster”) is her real last name. It’s a far cry from last names like “Faucher” and “Plouffe”, and it gives you some idea of her efficiency: before she’s even thought of a concept, she’ll likely be calling you to negotiate something. Jacinthe is the kind of woman who says “I’ll take care of it” 50 times a day. And she takes care of it like you wouldn’t believe.
