Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) has hired Chris Collenette as a Senior Associate in its Toronto office. Chris has been a public affairs consultant for more than 10 years—on top of his involvement in the Liberal Party of Canada and the Ontario Liberal Party where for several years he was a volunteer, fundraiser and political staff member. Prior to entering the private sector, Chris served as an adviser for Ontario to the prime minister of Canada, minister of industry and minister of health.
A citizen of both Canada and Great Britain, Chris will work between Toronto and Dublin, Ireland, to provide strategic advice regarding public affairs, B2B, trade and inward investment. He will continue to concentrate on opportunities for Canadian, U.K. and Irish companies on both sides of the Atlantic using his deep knowledge of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), recently signed between Canada and the European Union.
