In 2015, he launched Perrier Jablonski, a new breed of strategic consulting firm dedicated to three simple principles: understanding the consumer better than anyone else, brainstorming with clients (and never without them) and adopting a “tough love” approach that empowers managers and executives in order to let their creativity thrive and flourish.

The radical shift advocated by Perrier Jablonski has been embraced by startups, multinationals, small and medium-sized businesses, municipal administrations, provincial and federal government agencies, professional associations and institutions, among them Danone, La Coop fédérée, Agropur, Ubisoft, Loto-Québec, South Shore, Otsuka and Ville de Montréal, to name but a few.
