The corrected release reads:


From intern to general manager, Jackie King takes the helm

Mike Coates, chairman and CEO of Hill+Knowlton Strategies Canada (H+K), the country’s No. 1-rated public relations and public affairs firm, announces the promotion of one of the company’s best success stories, Jackie King.

Jackie has been promoted to general manager, Ottawa, overseeing its public affairs, communications, public engagement and procurement groups, and now joins the firm’s national senior management team. She will continue as the Canadian lead for the global change and internal communications practice group, an area of expertise that she has grown into one of the firm’s national specialties.

“Jackie represents the best of H+K, and what is possible for those who personify commitment and conviction,” says Goldy Hyder, president of H+K Canada. “Her tireless and selfless efforts on behalf of both her colleagues and her clients made her the natural choice to become Ottawa’s general manager.”

Jackie started her H+K career nearly 15 years ago as an intern after completing a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Carleton University and an honours diploma in public relations from Algonquin College. Her proven skills and knack for all facets of PR and corporate communications earned her progressive promotions. In 2008, Jackie started managing the communications group in the Ottawa office and has helped it become the Ottawa region’s largest communications consultancy, integrated with national accounts across the H+K network.

“The journey from intern to general manager is a long and difficult one – not for the faint of heart, nor those lacking in spirit. Jackie has earned the trust and confidence of everyone in Ottawa through the excellence of her example. I could not have hoped or asked for a better successor,” adds Hyder.
