New vice-president of university relations

After a dedicated search, a new leader was found for the university relations office. Diane Kenyon will join the University of Calgary as vice president (university relations) on March 28, 2011.

Kenyon joins the University of Calgary from Ryerson University where she currently holds the position of assistant vice-president, marketing and communications. During her six years at Ryerson, Kenyon has been a key member of the senior team guiding the university through a transformative period of growth and success. Under her leadership, the Ryerson’s profile and reputation were significantly enhanced and connections were strengthened with alumni, media, internal and external stakeholders, and municipal, provincial and federal governments.

Prior to joining Ryerson, Kenyon spent 14 years with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in a variety of senior marketing, communications and strategy roles. As executive director, communications for CBC’s English Services, she led integrated marketing and communications strategy for both the national networks and local stations. She travelled to all regions of Canada and oversaw local CBC communications teams across the country, including in Alberta.

Kenyon has a track record of building effective and respected teams in large, complex organizations, and launching innovative initiatives that support institutional goals. She will play an important role in enhancing the University of Calgary’s profile and reputation as our institution continues to share stories with Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the world.
