Managing Director, Vancouver
Dana has honed her passion for effective communications into a 25+ year career of helping businesses establish and grow their products, brands and markets. She succeeds by putting into practice an innate skill of crafting the right strategies to get the right messages to the right audiences.
As Managing Director of GEM's Vancouver office, Dana brings her extensive international experience back "home" to where she was raised. Many years living and working in Asia and Australia, coupled with her Post Baccalaureate Masters in Asian Business, help her to navigate Vancouver's multicultural business community and to support clients with international ambitions. Her background in technology marketing with the likes of Nortel, Motorola and IBM will be put to use steering local Vancouver tech companies towards success.
During her overseas career, Dana built her own successful small business — a communications and copywriting consultancy in Australia. Over the 13-year lifespan of the business, she achieved impressive results for both B2B and B2C clients across industries as diverse as health food, alternative energy, telecom, power systems, accountancy and home interiors.
Dana loves sunny days, good books, long hikes and traveling anywhere.
