New Media BC’s Brown joins Edelman

Former New Media BC head Lynda Brown-Ganzert has joined Edelman Canada as Vice President of Digital Media, Entertainment and Technology. Brown was one of the most active builders of Canada’s digital media industry during her time as President of New Media BC where she grew the association from an annual operating budget of $300,000 to more than $3 million in just over three years.

She’ll be working out of Edelman’s Vancouver office, Karyo Edelman – the largest PR agency in Vancouver, signaling new growth and development in the digital media, entertainment and technology practice area for the agency. Brown’s most significant (and visible) local legacy is this month’s Vancouver International Digital Festival which she was the founding Executive Producer.
