Coming off a 2019 year that was all about a sense of renewal, SYRUS now continues build out its offerings through its announcement of Kate Monfette as Account Director. With her arrival, cabinet clients will be able to benefit from added experience in the field of public affairs and government relations.
“Kate joins us at a time when her strategic input will enrich the team,” said Myriam Crevier, Vice- President and General Manager at SYRUS. “This breadth of knowledge, most notably in federal politics, allows her to bring a nuanced lens on complex subjects making her an excellent popularizer. A true team player, she has a real knack for establishing relationships and creating strong partnerships.”
Kate counts over a decade of experience in public affairs and communications, primarily in strategic planning, issues management, marketing, media relations and events. A communication and political science graduate from l’Université de Montréal, she most notably served as communications director for two federal ministers and was the press secretary for two party leaders. She also had the opportunity to travel across the country as she learned the diverse regional realities of Canada from coast to coast. In addition to her experience in politics, Kate also spent time in the university health and aeronautic technology sectors.
