For Immediate Release
Calgary, Alberta, May 8, 2018
CIPR Communications is pleased to announce that communications professional Dario Alvarez has joined the agency, adding senior level experience to the growing public relations and digital communications firm.
“I am thrilled to have Dario join our team,” said CIPR Communications CEO, Christina Pilarski. “His expertise in strategy development, investor communications, and media and stakeholder relations will add substantial value to our clients and depth to CIPR.”
Dario is a bilingual communications professional with over 15 years of experience in diverse industries and environments, ranging from private entrepreneurial start-ups to publicly traded multinational mining and energy companies.
“I’m so excited to join this innovative agency. My key strengths as a communicator are to provide meaning, perspective, and understanding to an audience that is increasingly informed yet substantially more confused. As a cross-disciplinarian, problem solver and lifelong learner, I believe I have the unique ability to articulate how technological changes are altering the way we communicate and interact,” Alvarez said.
Throughout his career, Alvarez has been fortunate to do business in more than 25 countries worldwide, which has allowed him to gain a unique global perspective and a local focus.
Dario studied Law at Los Andes University in Bogota, Colombia. He veered off a legal career when he discovered a passion for public relations and communications.
“I thrive in environments that allow me to be creative. I love pulling together communications tactics that will engage key audiences in new ways,” explains Alavarez. He also holds a BA and a BA Honours from the University of Calgary as well as a Master's Degree in Communications from the University of Alberta.
In addition to providing strategic direction and support to CIPR Communications’ clients, Dario will play a key role in growing Cannabiz Social, a communications and marketing company owned by CIPR that specializes in empowering the Canadian cannabis industry through innovative communications.
