“John MacKay is Canada’s pre-eminent PR maestro. His former experience as a magazine Editor-in-Chief gives him a unique and intelligent perspective on generating brand awareness and publicity for his clients and interest among the press corps. I dare you to miss a MacKay & Co. event!”
Past Fashion Director
“We hired MacKay & Co as Kiehl’s Canadian agency of record because of John MacKay’s capacity to grasp Kiehl’s and be completely in tune with the brand and expected results. With MacKay & Co. we found partners committed to thoroughly understanding the business in order to ensure a spot-on communications strategy. During the three years that MacKay & Co. represented us they generated impressive, quantifiable results that exceeded our expectations. It was a great pleasure to work with such a focused and professional team.”

“MacKay & Co. helped launch Consonant™ Body Organic Skincare in the Canadian market, and the results were phenomenal; but MacKay’s contribution to our business began well before the first media release was ever drafted. Early on, they partnered with us to ensure all elements of our in-market presence, from packaging to in-person presentations, were strategic, compelling and most importantly, engineered for success. Once we were ready, their execution of our program was impeccable. In addition to rallying the country’s most influential and important media to our cause, which resulted in an enormous amount of press for our company and our products, the momentum MacKay and his team helped create for Consonant is delivering business results we can quantify, and that’s the bottom line.”

“I’m often asked who does the best PR in the city, and honestly, if you are looking for someone who really understands the media, John MacKay is the go-to guy. He is enormously respected and, frankly, the classiest guy in the business.”
