MARY ANNE MOSER - PRESIDENT AND CEO, TELUS SPARK
Mary Anne Moser was named Telus Spark’s new president and CEO April 2019.
“Telus Spark is ready to take on the future and we are thrilled to welcome her to the organization,” Sheila Leggett, chair of the Telus Spark board of directors, said in a news release. “As a senior executive and CEO, her record of building innovative, community-based enterprises with high performing, collaborative teams, and her commitment to strong internal and external communications make her the perfect fit to lead Telus Spark into the future.”
Ms. Moser has more than 25 years of experience in entrepreneurial roles. She co-founded Beakerhead, which is well-known for its annual festival that blends art and engineering for a vibrant and interactive experience, about a decade ago.
Mary Anne has built a career where science and society intersect. She worked as a journalist and an award-winning graphic designer before finding her entrepreneurial wings as the founding editor of the Banff Centre Press in the mid-1990s. She then started the Banff Science Communications Program in 2005, Canada’s Iron Science Teacher competition in 2007, and was a member of the start-up steering committee for the Science Media Centre of Canada in 2010.
In parallel with these entrepreneurial pursuits, Mary Anne worked in communication leadership roles for high-speed networking and computing infrastructure organizations, government-funded initiatives to stimulate Alberta’s tech sector as well as the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary.
