Leigh Carter, Senior Communications Advisor
Leigh has over 30 years of senior corporate communications experience with Crown corporations, major provincial associations, and government. From leading communications during the controversial launch of photo radar at the Insurance Corporation of BC (ICBC), to being part of the team that created the award-winning CBC-TV series “Doctor Doctor”, to holding GM-level public affairs positions at Metro Vancouver and the Comox Valley Regional District, to developing the first social media platforms for regional government – Leigh’s background is diverse.
Her respected background and media credentials (in major market newspaper, radio and television) have well-positioned Leigh to help organizations think strategically about public reaction to issues. As a sought-after speaker (and expert) on communications, she joins ZINC to advise government clients on using communications and social media effectively in times of crisis—and celebration.
