Canton will be responsible for developing and implementing the McLaren communications strategy in the Americas. His responsibilities include corporate, brand and product communications as well as social media for the region. Canton joins as the company readies to launch its most exclusive product to date, the McLaren P1™ GTR, and its most attainable: a range of sportscars currently codenamed P13.  He will be supported by JMPR Public Relations Inc. which was recently appointed as McLaren Automotive’s North American Agency of Record.

Canton has worked for a number of category-leading global brands, including directing Ducati’s PR efforts during the company’s North American renaissance. He enjoys vintage autos and motorcycles in his spare time, and is a dual US-Italian citizen.
