CMF Adds Chief Strategy Officer to Executive Team


The Canada Media Fund (CMF) has brought on Kelly Wilhelm in the newly created role of chief strategy officer.

Wilhelm is tasked with contributing to setting the future trajectory of the CMF, with a specific focus on innovation through the lens of industry-wide disruption and opportunities for growth. She will be reporting directly to and acting in an advisory capacity to Valerie Creighton, the CMF’s president and CEO.

“I couldn’t be happier to welcome Kelly to the team,” said Creighton. “I had the pleasure of working closely with her during her time as senior policy advisor to the Minister of Canadian Heritage. As we continue our work of bringing Canadians together through our common stories, Kelly’s passion and dedication to Canadian culture, coupled with her experience and deep knowledge of the media landscape will be an asset to the CMF and the industry we serve.”
