CNW Leadership Team

Nicole Guillot

Exciting things are happening at CNW.

Just a few short years after CNW was acquired by PR Newswire, PR Newswire has been acquired by Cision. This means that CNW is now a Cision company.

By combining capabilities, we will provide clients with the industry’s best content distribution, influencer outreach and analytics offerings.

This move is the latest example of Cision’s commitment to delivering innovative products and services to communications, social and content marketing professionals that enable their stories to reach far and wide to the audiences that matter the most to them.

Canadian Cision and CNW teams are joining together, sharing locations and pooling knowledge to ensure ongoing excellence of our offerings in this market. All of CNW’s products and services and all of Cision’s solutions will be sold and supported under the CNW brand in Canada.

We’re excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. For more information, see the official news release.
