Before transitioning to marketing and communications, Irene was an established journalist and editor based in Toronto. She was Managing Editor of Digital Properties at Metro News Canada, and prior to that, a finance and technology reporter for Thomson Reuters. Her work has appeared in online and print publications such as Thomson Reuters, Metro News, Toronto Star, Globe Investor, MSN, Yahoo and numerous others.
Irene’s portfolio reflects her extensive and diverse interests, which lead her to many different roles in the news business — from print reporting, TV, radio and into the digital journalism. The evolution of digital news was what inspired her to explore and report on the city’s emerging technology sector and start-ups.
