“Five years ago we detected a change in the live production landscape and made a decision to evolve to a more exhibition style curation of shows,” Paquin founder and CEO Gilles Paquin says.  “The success of our cornerstone theatrical world experience was a guiding light in this evolution. We also broadened our agency division’s footprint with the expansion from two cities to four and over 90 staff and a focus on building our agent team. Vinny Cinquemani joining Paquin is extremely exciting.  We are privileged to have him add his years of knowledge and passionate work ethic to our team.”
