At NATIONAL, we are proud to be doing work that continues to put us at the centre of issues and industries that matter, leading change for today and tomorrow. We are making impact across the country and around the globe.

Our leadership roles in the network and in our communities continue to evolve. Sarah Young will be taking on a new role as Chief Engagement Officer for the Mass Casualty Commission. Sarah will continue to act as a partner and senior counsel at NATIONAL, and she will remain a member of AVENIR GLOBAL’s board of directors.

Kevin McCann has accepted the role of managing partner of NATIONAL Atlantic. He will also be a member of AVENIR GLOBAL’s board.

Martin Daraiche, president of NATIONAL Public Relations, comments: “Our people are part of their communities in Atlantic and across Canada. They maintain longstanding relationships with clients, do meaningful work to help organizations expand and navigate challenges, and grow into strong leaders. Kevin and Sarah are great examples of that, and it makes me proud and confident for the future.”

Throughout his ten years at NATIONAL as Partner, Kevin has worked with clients in public and private sectors. Specializing in strategy, communications and advocacy, he led transformational campaigns for many clients across North America. Along with leading a team in Atlantic Canada, he has been instrumental in AVENIR GLOBAL’s corporate strategy on research, insights, and strategic planning.

Kevin is a leader in the community, having served as a board member with the YMCA Greater Halifax-Dartmouth and the Dalhousie University Advisory Council.

We commend both of these tremendous leaders.
