Catherine Buteau, M.A.
Account Manager, Montreal
Catherine provides expertise on content creation and management, as well as developing integrated communication strategies for clients across sectors, including asset management, payroll & HR, technology and mental health.
Catherine’s passion for communication has driven her to seek as much experience as she can in the field since the start of her career. She first interned as a communication’s agent at Radio-Canada Acadie, in New-Brunswick, where she lived as she attended university. Following that, she briefly worked as a journalist in Haïti, her home country for one of the longest running radio stations and then, the national daily newspaper. She believes that all these experiences helped her develop wider views of the world and perspectives that nourish her work today.
Before joining Kaiser & Partners, Catherine worked as a marketing consultant for Manulife, where she helped develop strategies for B2C and B2B audiences to promote the group benefits portion of the business.
Catherine holds a master’s degree in International and Intercultural Communications from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). For her thesis, she studied Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), analyzing their communication strategies, especially as they present (and represent) developing countries and their citizens to a western audience. She interviewed several communication and marketing experts working in NGOs or in the humanitarian sector to understand their process and gather their thoughts on their work and the field in general. She received high mentions for her thesis. Catherine is fluent in French, Haitian Creole, and English.
