A first in the 50-year history of the CMDC occurred at the Canadian Media Directors’ Council’s (CMDC) AGM last week.In recognition of the expanding footprint of media agencies and the need for a wider perspective on our marketplace, the Canadian Media Directors’ Council (CMDC) announced the appointment of Co-Chairs to take the helm. Wavemaker CEO, Ann Stewart, and Jungle Media, Managing Director, Sheri Metcalfe were officially introduced as Co-Chairs of the CMDC Board.This evolution of the CMDC Executive coincides with its 50-year legacy of championing the media industry – and a revitalization of the board’s structure and future strategic vision. Indeed, the CMDC is poised to shortly implement a more focused and robust vision – the pillars of which are said to be around trust, knowledge and influence.
“The knowledge and networks of our new leadership will bring a sharper lens to our activities and support our new strategic direction revealed in the upcoming months.” says CMDC President, Janet Callaghan.”It is exciting to take on the CMDC Co-Chair role”, says Sheri Metcalfe, who has operated as the Chair of the CMDC’s Youth Ambassadors for the past four years. “though it is difficult to give up the Youth Ambassador Program, that has flourished over the past three years. But we have our celebration event on Tuesday at SteamWhistle Brewery, which our amazing group of Youth Ambassadors have pulled together, and makes me so proud of my association with them.”

“I have spent the past few months driving change bringing two leading media companies together in Canada. Meanwhile, leveraging global best practise and applied learning across our new agency structure. I am confident this experience leading change will be a great asset to the CMDC association.” reports Ann Stewart, Wavemaker CEO.

Rounding out the Executive appointments, Kristine Lyrette, President of Zenith was appointed CMDC Treasurer.
