It is an essential strength in today’s crowded marketplace. ”
At Pilot, Toller will take a hands-on, client-facing role focused on strategic communications, brand development and thought leadership initiatives.
During her career, Toller has worked at the highest level of Canadian media. Her experience includes senior roles at The Vancouver Sun, Report on Business Magazine and The Globe and Mail, where she edited various sections of the paper and later oversaw its weekend edition. She holds a degree in English literature from Queen’s University.
