Masthead has learned that Marc Blondeau, senior vice-president, consumer publishing and président, Les Éditons Rogers – Québec, will be leaving the company on October 16th. He has been with the company for nine years.

"Marc met with his management team and the staff in the last twenty-four hours in both Montreal and Toronto to share some of the personal and professional goals that have led to him moving on," said Suneel Khanna, senior director of communications for Rogers Consumer Publishing. He would not comment on whether the position will be replaced or if a successor has been named.

during his nine years with the company," said Segal in the memo. "It is under his tenure that were regrouped all of our consumer magazine brands in Canada within a new division that has permitted us to strengthen and grow our position and to launch new successful brands such as LouLou and Hello!" He also noted that Blondeau's "disciplined commuting" between the Toronto and Montreal offices helped reinforce the link between employees in both locations.

Blondeau came to Rogers in 2000 after a career in broadcasting in Quebec. According to his biography on the Rogers website he worked at Groupe TVA from 1993 to 2000. During his time there he established the television network as a leader in Québec’s news field and launched LCN, French Canada's only private all news TV specialty channel.
