National Public Relations is pleased to announce that Meagan Murdoch, a seasoned communications professional with an expertise in agriculture and food, has joined its Capital Markets practice as a Director.
Prior to joining National, Meagan spent several years as a Senior Consultant at Baldwin Boyle Group in New Zealand and Australia, advising a range of clients including Fonterra Co-operative Ltd., a major global dairy player and New Zealand’s largest company on its shareholder relations.
Before working internationally, she spent nearly a decade in the Canadian government, including as Director of Communications and Press Secretary to several Ministers across agriculture and agri-food, finance, as well as employment and social development portfolios. She managed the communications of controversial legislation including the removal of the Canadian Wheat Board single desk, various food safety system failures, nearly 30 international trade missions, and several cross-country annual budget consultations and campaigns.
“We’re excited to have Meagan join our team. Her experience managing complex and high-profile communications files has made her a calm, decisive and trusted advisor that will be a tremendous asset to our clients and will add to the bench strength of our team,” said Andrea Mandel-Campbell, Senior Vice-President, National Capital Markets. “Whether it’s a transaction, ongoing strategic counsel and market positioning, or a major crisis, our team understands the market, our clients’ business, and can provide real-time support required to help companies achieve their goals.”
“The opportunity to be a part of National‘s impressive Capital Markets team and Canada’s largest independent public relations firm made the decision to return to Canada an easy one,” said Murdoch. “I’m excited to add my expertise to National‘s full-service capabilities in investor relations and financial and corporate communications to best serve our clients in today’s increasingly complex and challenging marketplace.”
