We are extremely proud of the team we have at Kaiser & Partners (K&P) and grateful that they choose to work with us every day. As such, I wanted to take the opportunity to provide an update on some of the incredible new talent we have added to the team since the summer, as well as celebrate the individual career growth of a few other members!
Let’s start with the new(er) additions:
Siobhan Duffy, Office Administrator
A recent relocation from Ireland led Siobhan to join K&P in the role of office administrator this month. To this role she brings an international, professional background in teaching, technical skills and a keen ability to create organization out of chaos. We are so excited to have her support and her positivity around the office.
Jamie-Lynn Giove, Account Coordinator
This month we also welcomed Jamie Giove to the team as account coordinator, primarily assisting the financial and corporate practice groups. Jamie will contribute experience working with both consumer and corporate clients, as well as experience in media relations, writing and working with influencers gained at a previous agency.
Mia Palantzas, Account Coordinator
Mia joined us as an intern early in Spring 2022 and quickly adapted to the fast-paced and dynamic nature of a busy PR agency. It was no surprise to anyone on the team when we offered her a full-time role in August. Besides her talents in media relations, research and measurement, she brings a positive, can-do attitude that is appreciated by all her teammates.
Amanda Spearing, Account Coordinator
Amanda’s existing experience with project management and writing has helped her transition quickly into our agency. Her previous roles in both construction and electric industries also gave her skills in workflow management, internal communications and advertising, which she’s lending to her teams in a meaningful way.
Manal Belcadi, Account Coordinator, Montréal
Joining our incredible équipe de Montréal in September, Manal Belcadi began her career in Morocco in journalism and those skills have helped her transition quickly to helping her clients secure earned media, both in Quebec, and nationally. We are also thrilled to have her supporting national clients with content development, research and measurement.
Catherine Buteau, Account Manager, Montréal
It feels like just yesterday that we were lucky enough to find Catherine Buteau and add her to the Montréal team as an account manager, but she has been working hard and making a huge impact on client success since June this year. Catherine has worked in the insurance and banking industry, as well as journalism, which has made her a huge asset to her clients in these sectors and others!
Carrie Pala, Account Manager
Carrie joined the team in June as an account manager in the technology practice group, bringing years of valuable experience working in both B2B and B2C with technology, retail and consumer brands. She has an unwavering commitment to success for her clients and balances creativity in PR programs with overall business goals. For these reasons and more, we’re so glad she’s here!
Michaela Mason, Account Manager
Our most recent addition at the account manager level, in the technology practice, is Michaela Mason, who brings years of experience working with technology and financial clients. From her first day, she has been meaningfully contributing to accounts, being proactive and lending her media relations and influencer experience to drive results for clients.
We are also pleased to welcome Yevgeniya Yan who joined us as fall intern and Victoria Jigounova, Naima Sood and Angel Carolino, who joined as winter interns and are already contributing meaningfully to their teams.
Finally, let’s celebrate a few incredible people who earned promotions over the last few months. We are so proud of the success they’ve achieved and love to see them continue to grow and excel as professionals.

Maxine Bullock, promoted to Senior Account Coordinator in October
