“We are beyond thrilled to have Vanessa join the team at VOLUME18,” commented Heather MacAulay, Chief Movement Officer and Co-owner of VOLUME18. “Her background in marketing for restaurants, hotels and the travel industry paired with her eye for detail and design adds another dimension to our creative team.”
Vanessa Smith recently worked as the Manager, Marketing and Communications for the Charlottetown Airport Authority and prior to that as the Marketing Manager for Murphy Hospitality Group. She’s the founder of Business in the Open, an interview-style event for local entrepreneurs , a Discover Charlottetown Board Member, a Meetings & Conventions Marketing & Sales Committee Member, and sits on the Gold Cup Parade Committee.
“Vanessa has already jumped in to support our clients in the tourism and hospitality industry as she is very familiar with that sector and with the struggles facing all clients in getting their messaging out and recovering business from COVID-19”, said Chief Taskmaster and Co-Owner of VOLUME18, Christina MacLeod. “Plus it’s like bringing the old gang together.”
Christina, Heather and Vanessa previously worked together to found Fusion Charlottetown in 2014 and Vanessa served as the second Chair of Fusion Charlottetown.
“It’s been a roller coaster for everyone, including our clients so adding another support and viewpoint to help navigate the ups and downs of this pandemic and economic situation is invaluable,” Macleod commented.
