Nora Ahern Managing Director & Co-founder of Village&Co. @noraahern

Before I figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up, I worked at DDB as VP Group Business Director. While I was there I lovingly took care of the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) account resulting in it being crowned Marketing Magazine’s 2009 Marketer of the Year. Being Irish and having moved to Canada five years ago, selling Canada to travellers was a remarkable opportunity. I love travel and it loved me. Canada had such an effect on me that I couldn’t help but become a Canadian Citizen.

Before moving here, I worked at various agencies in Ireland working on a variety of categories — automotive, fashion retail, utilities and technology — adding up to over 16 years experience in the communications business. Being Managing Director of a Village is my dream job. The only thing that I love more than social media is helping clients love social media.
