VALCOURT, QUEBEC – June 17, 2013 – After a rigorous multi-agency search process, BRP selects Blast Radius, part of the Wunderman network and WPP group of companies, as its global digital agency of record.

”New technologies and interactive models are changing how consumers interact with brands, and now more than ever, influence the customer experience,” said Yves Leduc, vice-president and general manager, North America division. ”BRP is committed to offering consumers a best-in-class experience and will leverage the digital channel to deliver on this promise,” he added.

A leader in their industry with extensive global reach, Blast Radius comes with an impressive array of knowledge and experience to help BRP enable new digital opportunities throughout the consumer decision journey. ”Our aim is to create an enhanced and consistent consumer experience worldwide.  It was therefore fundamental that we partner with a global digital agency, one with solid international understanding and capabilities” said Chris Dawson, vice-president and general manager, International division.

Once integrated into its portfolio of agencies, BRP will look to Blast Radius for thought leadership in delivering winning digital strategies for consumers, dealers, distributors, employees and other stakeholders. ”We believe in networked brands.
