Corus COO Barb Williams to Retire


Barb Williams, executive VP and chief operating officer at Corus Entertainment, will be retiring at the end of the month.

Williams joined Corus as part of the company’s acquisition of Shaw Media on April 1, 2016. She has played a key role in the successful integration of the two companies. Corus will not be replacing the COO role.

“Barb’s support and dedication have been invaluable since our transformational acquisition of Shaw Media, as we’ve successfully integrated the two companies to create Canada’s leading pure-play media and content company,” said Doug Murphy, president and CEO of Corus Entertainment. “I’m incredibly proud of what Barb has helped us build over the past two-and-a-half years. All of us at Corus wish her well in the future.”
