Welcome, Carolyn Ray!
Last week, we announced the opening of our Toronto office and Carolyn Ray as Managing Director. Today, I want to share with you a bit more about Carolyn, a person that we’ve had the pleasure to work with for several months.
Carolyn rounds out the CASACOM team wonderfully. For more than 20 years, she has worked as a consultant in top level communications. During her diverse career, she has advised both B2B and B2C organizations, and is recognized as an expert in aligning external and internal communications.
Carolyn possesses unique credentials, having practiced public relations, marketing and branding. From her time at Interbrand, she is a passionate defender of brands and understands what drives their value. In addition, she has a profound understanding of how vital internal communications is to business success; she understands how to help leaders and managers authentically engage employees during times of organizational change. She also believes in the power of face-to-face dialogue – perhaps that’s why her twitter name is @dialoguedivaray!
Beyond her solid experience and business-savvy, Carolyn is constantly encouraging the people around her to strive for insights, challenge conventional thinking, and continue to be highly discerning. She is enthusiastic, committed to the best possible outcomes and deeply engaged to her clients and team. And although we, as Montrealers, pride ourselves on our joie de vivre, I can tell you that Carolyn’s energy and humour is absolutely contagious. From playing on the Unionville soccer team, to teaching new PR approaches at Ryerson, to being actively involved on the board of Big Brothers Big Sisters, she is very passionate about giving back to her community.
We are truly happy to welcome her to our team. Our office on College Street in Toronto is in a wonderful neighbourhood filled with unique restaurants and cafes, so if you’re looking for a fresh perspective, please stop by for some Italian pastries any time!
