About Paquin Entertainment Group

Founded in 1985, Paquin Entertainment Group is a full-service, diversified entertainment company, and home to four divisions: Artist Management, Artists Agency, Theatre & Film and Corporate Services.

Led by CEO and industry veteran Gilles Paquin, the Artist Management division proudly supports, oversees and directs the creative endeavours of iconic performers, such as Randy Bachman, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Bachman & Turner; and Juno-nominated singer-songwriter Del Barber. As managers, the division focuses on maximizing opportunities to market and distribute the creative efforts of each artist on a global scale, contributing to their respective career potential.

Since the beginning, the Artists Agency roster, which includes over 150 artists, has proudly represented world-class artists on a national and international level, spanning from music to theatre to dance. Operating under the direction of Julien Paquin and Todd Jordan, the success of the Artists Agency division is built on creating and implementing tour strategies that deliver successful and sustaining careers for artists Serena Ryder, The Sheepdogs, Whitehorse, K'NAAN and Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

In 2004, the Theatre & Film division expanded to include Koba Entertainment under the artistic direction of Patti Caplette. Koba Entertainment selects the best of children’s literature and television, such as Toopy and Binoo, Dora the Explorer and The Backyardigans, and creates fresh adaptations for the stage. Koba’s theatrical productions have been enjoyed by families in more than 165 North American cities, 12 countries and four continents.

With a 30-plus-year history of successful event management and concert production, the Corporate Services division provides customized solutions to select clients, tours and productions, ranging from prestigious corporate events to arena concerts. Event management services include concept development; budgeting; talent coordination and programming; production and site management; legal affairs; and financial management. As the newest addition to the Company, the tour marketing management team creates and implements multi-platform publicity and marketing strategies, as well as graphic design and branding consultation.

Today, with offices in Winnipeg, Toronto and Vancouver, Paquin Entertainment Group continues to expand, evolve and maintain the highest standards in all of its artistic endeavours.
