  • "Cathy assisted Siemens Canada with three important marketing initiatives - the ‘refresh’ of Siemens’ corporate B2B branding campaign; the development/management of Siemens’ booth at the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games; and the launch of Siemens Canada Engineering and Technology Academy. These initiatives were high-profile, complex and timely. Each involved many stakeholders in and outside of Siemens and all benefited from the deft touch of a senior marketer. Cathy has earned my confidence and trust. We continue to work together. Cathy is an ideal senior professional that both contributes to marketing strategy and then owns/leads the ensuing execution. I know her deliverables will be on-strategy and high quality. She works well (and independently) with all levels of internal resources. Cathy represents Siemens well to our customers. I would welcome any enquiries about working with Cathy."

    Ann AdairVP Communication and Strategy, Siemens Canada

She has the unique ability to bring projects to resolution in the quickest way possible with all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed – all the while, building great networks across the organization, at every level.
