Catrin Owen – Fellowship Award Recipient for the 43rd Annual ACE Awards, celebrated on April 23, 2022. 

 

Described by her nominators – yes, multiple! – as “the most admired communicator in Edmonton”, Catrin Owen has been a fixture in our communications and advertising industry for 20 years. From communications at Edmonton Public Schools to CEO at Calder Bateman to her current role as Deputy City Manager, Communications + Engagement at City of Edmonton, Catrin has shaped the institutions of this city with her sharp strategic mind. 

 

A ”force of nature” in her work, Catrin is a trusted advisor to the important and influential as well as a dedicated mentor for early-career communicators. Her particular talent for making people and their ideas feel welcome has sparked common ground on contentious issues in her work as a facilitator. 

 

In recognition of Catrin making our industry a better place through her world-class skillset, as well as her generosity in sharing her time as a mentor and colleague, ACE is proud to recognize her as this year’s Fellowship Award winner.
