Doug Kirkwood

Account Manager, Calgary & Area

 

ABOUT THE ROLE

Doug's primary objective is to help businesses in the Calgary area reach and connect with a desirable audience, and in turn, he helps local community facilities as REC splits advertising revenue with our partner facilities. This helps cover the operating costs of these facilities, ensuring that they’re accessible and affordable for all citizens to use.

ABOUT DOUG

When Doug isn't fishing, you might be able to catch him playing a round of golf or riding his bike.  Born and raised in Ontario, he's been "out west" for 11 years and worked for over 20 years behind a microphone in radio at various stops across Canada.  His perfect vacation would be with his wife, swimming with the sharks in Belize - something they've already done once before.

A PICTURE IS WORTH 1000 WORDS...BUT EXPLAIN THE PICTURE IN 100 WORDS OR LESS

Fishing has always been a big part of my life and this was the largest fresh water fish I had ever caught.  After 1 hour and 15 minutes of reeling it in, we were able to beach this beautiful sturgeon to take our pictures and then release it.  It was the first fish we caught that day and it was great to have a friend from Ontario experience the catch of a lifetime.  The Fraser River in the lower mainland of BC has always been a favorite stop for me.
