Immedia, a public relations firm based in Vancouver, has appointed Connell A. Kennedy as it’s new account director. In his new role, Kennedy will be serving clients in British Columbia, including Canadian Tourism Commission and Granville Island.

"Connell’s keen insight and engaging personality will allow him to quickly build relationships with clients and the media, and his extensive background in creating partnerships will see exciting new opportunities for Immedia," said Heather Kirk, Immedia’s president.

Kennedy, a graduate of University College Dublin’s Smurfit Graduate School of Business, most recently worked Talk Shop Media, and was a senior account manager at Core Communications in Auckland, New Zealand. The Ireland native has also held agency and in-house positions in Dublin.

From making her kids’ Kraken Halloween costumes inspired by Seattle’s National Hockey League team to chasing the sun in eastern Washington looking for spots to camp, Kelly Saling’s love for the Pacific Northwest is apparent in all aspects of her life—including her career.

Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event.
