Pilot PMR is pleased to announce that Wendy Bairos, former Communications and Public Affairs Manager for Google Canada, has joined the Toronto agency as its Director of Media Relations.

Bairos is the latest addition to the Pilot team with deep experience working at the highest ranks of Canadian media.

"Wendy is an immense talent," said Pilot PMR founder and CEO David Doze. "Her experience with Google has given her strong relationships with the media and important insights into business, marketing, and modern communications within today's evolving landscape. She is a creative thinker and problem solver, and will be a tremendous asset to our clients."
