Enterprise CEO Barbara Fox To Receive Public Affairs Association of Canada’s Award of Distinction

Enterprise CEO Barbara Fox is being recognized for her longstanding contributions to public affairs in Canada and continued dedication to innovation in a changing landscape.

Fox will receive the Public Affairs Association of Canada’s (PAAC) Award of Distinction at its annual conference on June 6, joining an extensive list of prominent Canadian public affairs leaders, including former Enterprise Vice Chair John Weir, Elyse Allan, Steve Paikin, Greg Lyle, Robin Sears, Dick Pound, Angus Reid and Honourable Hugh D. Segal, C.M.

“It’s a privilege and honour to be selected by PAAC for this award,” Fox said. “I’m proud of what our firm has accomplished. It takes creative ideas and integrated solutions that challenge traditional models to succeed in today’s environment, and I’m pleased to be leading a team that’s embraced that so well.”

The award comes at a significant time of change in the industry and for the firm, which recently went through a rebrand and expanded its practice areas, adding new talent in digital, municipal affairs, Indigenous relations and content production to a growing team.

“Our new brand and Look Inside philosophy truly represents the work we do,” Fox said. “Our clients come to us with an issue or challenge, and they all have barriers preventing them from reaching their goals. We Look Inside to reveal those barriers and help them succeed.”

Since 2001, PAAC has presented the award to a member of the public affairs community who, over their career, has made a significant contribution to industry in Canada.

Award winners must have skills in managing complex issues, dealing with diverse constituents and stakeholders, maintaining professionalism during crisis situations, and demonstrating innovation, leadership and professional integrity in the public affairs field.

Fox has successfully led her team through massive changes in technology and approaches in its work for some of Canada’s largest organizations. As a result, Enterprise has emerged as a firm with a unique combination of experience, expertise and capabilities.

“Barb is fantastic. She is dynamic, smart and one of the most effective leaders in Canada,” said Jason Lietaer, President of Enterprise. “I’ve never seen anyone manage people or issues better, and I’m proud to call her a friend and a partner.”

Fox will make an acceptance speech during the Award of Distinction luncheon at the PAAC conference on June 6 at St. Andrew’s Club in Toronto. This year’s theme, The Art and Science of Public Affairs, coincides with Canada 150 and will provide an opportunity for public affairs professionals to reflect on how the field has evolved and what’s in store for the future.
