“I never could have imagined a competition being able to bring together so many of our advertising partners,” said Donald Lizotte, General Manager and Chief Revenue Officer, CBC & Radio-Canada Media Solutions. “The whole industry benefits from the phenomenal buzz surrounding the event, not to mention the outstanding showcase it provides for creative excellence. Congratulations to the entire Bye bye team — producer Guillaume L’Espérance, content producer Simon Olivier-Fecteau, and all the performers and creatives who treated viewers to an electrifying year-end celebration.”
