“We look forward to welcoming the Achilles team to Brunico and, in particular, have long admired the iconic Banff Festival. Achilles has done a remarkable job building some of the most respected events in the industry, and it is with great privilege that we have the opportunity to be a part of growing this success story in the years to come,” said Russell Goldstein, President & CEO, Brunico.
“Brunico is the natural partner to help Achilles realize the full potential of its event portfolio while staying true to the needs of the communities they serve. We believe our clients and stakeholders are in excellent hands for the future,” remarked Robert Montgomery, CEO, Achilles Media.
