Meet the OBJ Editorial Advisory Board

OBJ seeks to be the leading voice in developing and sharing local business coverage, but we can’t do it without you.

That’s why we recently called for business people from all industries and backgrounds to join our Editorial Advisory Board. The council’s goal is to get to know you, our readers, better and to learn more about the dynamics of your industry and your perception of Ottawa as a business-friendly city. This contribution will help inform our editorial coverage, as well as other ways we interact with you.

We were delighted to receive many expressions of interest from a variety of qualified candidates. With some difficulty, we narrowed the group down to 15 people who we believe will bring interesting ideas and new perspectives to the table.

We are pleased to announce the members of our Editorial Advisory Board:

  • Shabana Ansari, co-founder, Peacock Press,
  • Jacqueline Belsito, Vice President Philanthropy, CHEO Foundation
  • Annie Boucher, President, Fuse Communications and Public Affairs,
  • Jennifer Cross, Director of Business Development, MARANT Construction
  • Dave Donaldson, Managing Partner, Bo’ness Management Consulting
  • Darren Fleming, CEO, Real Strategy Advisors
