Penny Charron

Penny Charron

Office & HR Manager

Originally from Cardiff, Penny brings a worldly perspective to Calder Bateman. Her years of experience in office management are rivaled only by her undeniably good baking skills, which—now that they’ve been mentioned—need to be tested for purely scientific reasons.

Andrea Peyton

Andrea Peyton

Senior Financial Officer

Andrea’s skill with numbers is only eclipsed by the size of her heart. She volunteers countless hours helping local charities and even founded her own non-profit: WeeHelp.

Kelly McIlroy

Kelly McIlroy

Receptionist

Kelly is as popular in our office as Santa is popular with kids around the world. On a related note, Kelly’s favourite food is reindeer stew. Seriously—Santa’s got nothing on her.

Jill Fraser

Jill Fraser

Admin

Jill knows how to balance lots of things all at once. At work, it’s the many ad hoc requests that hit her desk on a daily basis. At home, it’s three cats, two dogs and a teenager.

Victor makes crisis communications look easy and looks good doing it—dual citizenship with Canada and his birthplace Malta guarantees dozens of trips overseas and a wardrobe of duty-free garb.

In the 80s, Catrin fronted a Welsh punk band. Today she facilitates sessions with some of Alberta’s most powerful leaders and passionate advocates. Clearly she doesn’t lack courage in front of an audience.

Alysia Lambertus

Account Executive

Pop culture junkies like Alysia seem to find the best customer insights. Her cultural research takes the form of b-movies, entertainment blogs, and pretty much everything on Netflix.

Cm
Cheryl Meger

Cheryl Meger

Account Executive

At work, Cheryl enjoys the diversity of her clients. At play, she’s into snowboarding, golf, ringette, softball and walking her pup—just for a start. Notice a theme emerging?

Jm
Jordan Mair

Jordan Mair

Account Executive

Jordan was recruited to join our account team while living and teaching in Japan. Clearly his reputation for honour and respect in professional relationships was quite far reaching.

Wr
Wafia Ramprashad

Wafia Ramprashad

Project Manager

Wafia was born in the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. While she may be laidback as an islander once she gets home, she’s always right on top of her client projects here at work.

Kayla Panizzon

Kayla Panizzon

Danny Siman

Danny Siman

Account Coordinator

Before starting his career in advertising, Danny sold pitas. And guitars. And cars. Then he sold everything to learn la idioma in Spain. Now when our clients have something to sell, we know who to send them to. Olé!

Fascinated by the world around her, Vanessa is a self-proclaimed student of life. Her admirable ability to live in the moment means she’s well travelled and well informed, and if you’ve got a marketing problem, well, she’ll solve it.

Alycia Williamson

Alycia Williamson

Media Coordinator

One of Alycia’s life highlights was reveling in the world-famous Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. Needless to say, she likes to see a little excitement in her media buys.

Robert Falconer

Robert Falconer

Senior Art Director

A 30-year ad industry veteran, Robert recently became a father—teaching him it’s never too late to change. Then again, last minute ad changes may have taught him that long ago.

Nicola Pringle

Nicola Pringle

Art Director

Award-winning ads aren’t the only place you’ll find Nicola’s work. Her first job was with a publishing company—her Santa illustrations are still on a few Dollar Store gift bags.

Ryan Kenny

Ryan Kenny

Copywriter

Out of 21 countries visited, Tanzania was Ryan’s favourite. He says it has the perfect blend of excitement and friendliness—which also happens to be a good combination for successful copy.

Jon Manning

Jon Manning

Copywriter

You can’t spell mahjong without Jon. He just won’t let you. He also can’t get enough of being a creative writer. It seems to follow him around wherever he goes, which, you know, is probably good—considering it’s his job.

Ar
Adam Rozenhart

Adam Rozenhart

Digital Strategist

Back in the day, Adam co-founded OilersNation.com—now one of Alberta’s most popular hockey blogs. These days, he directs his digital and social media energy towards our clients. Lucky them.

Andrea Beça

Andrea Beça

Digital Project Manager

Impressive education aside, Andrea is a dog owner, playwright, filmmaker, dramaturge, Zumba instructor, blogger, vlogger and our digital project manager. So what’s the gist of this list? She’s a doer and she does things very, very well.

Jc
Jaime Calayo

Jaime Calayo

Art Director

Jaime once swallowed a still-beating snake heart, which we think is pretty hardcore. He’s equally hardcore when it comes to finessing the little details that make good design great.

An
Andrea Noye

Andrea Noye

Senior Digital Designer

Andrea almost became a denturist, which if you think about it, has a lot in common with design. No matter what she creates, everything has to fit just right.

Dave Falconer

Dave Falconer

Production Manager

Dave isn’t easy to pigeonhole. He likes tattoos, cigars and scotch—and he loves to bake. His interests at work are equally diverse—from managing print jobs, to I.T., to Photoshop.

Great designers keep up on the highs and lows of pop culture. That’s why Suzanne fanatically watches TV’s most celebrated dramas—along with a healthy dose of reality TV.

Jenelle Brémault

Jenelle Brémault

Graphic Designer

Jenelle is a creative any ad agency would hire in a heartbeat. And that’s exactly what we did. If you’re looking for her perspective, you’d do well to check the produce section. Because it’s fresh. Also, we don’t actually have a produce section.
