The Nova Scotia Chapter of the Canadian Public Relations Society has selected Suzanne Fougere, as a recipient of the Province’s first ever, “Communicator of the Year Award.”
Suzanne is Senior Director, Corporate Strategy, Marketing & Communications at Trade Centre Limited. She has played a key role in the development of the new Halifax Convention Centre, a three hundred thousand square foot venue within the Nova Centre, currently under construction in downtown Halifax.
“I am honoured and humbled by this recognition," said Suzanne I am part of a team helping to create an extremely exciting new facility and important addition to the economic development of Nova Scotia.”
Suzanne Fougere began her career at CCL Group in 2001 as a co-op student. And while she spent some time away from the business, she returned in a variety of positions, ultimately departing as an Account Director in 2009.
“The time I spent at CCL taught me almost everything I know about communications. CCL provided the foundational skills for my work as a business advisor and communications professional. I was exposed to a very diverse group of clients, projects and challenges there. The opportunities I have had since leaving CCL would not have occurred without the experience, relationships and contacts I experienced there,” said Suzanne.
“From her earliest days in our organization, it was apparent Suzanne possessed special skills, instincts and drive,” said CCL Group Chair and CEO Steve Parker.
We believe her recognition as Nova Scotia’s Communicator of the Year is highly deserved and heralds many more achievements in her future career,” Parker said.
