About Us

What Sets Us Apart? DNA features

C&C has a proven ability to understand our clients’ objectives and hit-the-ground running, generating exceptional results and value.

Results Driven

Founded in 2003 by Cathy Cowan, Cowan & Company works with a wide variety of clients ranging from: consumer packaged goods, food, entertainment, beauty, fashion, retail, healthcare, consumer electronics and the list goes on…. This daily exposure to multiple industries, media and influencers and clients keeps C&C focused on providing fresh thinking and an unsurpassed focus on generating results.

Tri-fold Communications Experience

Prior to C&C, our team members wore multiple hats including Media, Client and Agency. This gives us valuable first-hand insight into what we need to bring to the table to get the results our clients desire. Our professionalism, best practices and “Big PR Agency” backgrounds enable our team to effectively cut through the clutter, giving our clients the savvy of a big agency with the responsiveness & creativity of a boutique firm.

Partnership Approach

C&C strives each day to be a “partner” vs. a “supplier” to our clients. We see ourselves as an extension of our clients’ teams. We are proud of our long-lasting partnerships with our clients. We believe it’s a true testament to our forward-thinking approach to PR and exceptional results we continually achieve for our clients.


Cowan & Company’s virtual office structure minimizes overhead costs and we pass these savings along to our clients to maximize C&C’s value proposition.

Experienced Day-to-Day Team

Unlike many other boutique shops or agencies, the core team at Cowan & Company is comprised of senior senior PR practitioners who work hands-on both strategic development and front-line program implementation.

Perhaps most importantly, Cowan & Company is passionate about marketing communications and loves the opportunity to help clients achieve – and surpass – their communications objectives.

C&C Team

One critical factor that sets C&C apart from other boutique agencies is the first-class pedigree of our Leadership Team. With solid years of Big PR Agency, Client-side and Media experience behind them, each member of C&C’s Leadership is a PR Guru in their own right.

Together we are a force to be reckoned with!

Cowan & Company has affiliates in Montreal and Vancouver, as well as a talented pool of associates who are hand-picked for each project with optimal results in mind.
