Meet Our Staff

The Festival Promotions team is here to serve.

 

Scott McLaren, President

Born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, I came to Ottawa to take Marketing at the University of Ottawa and have been here ever since. I’m creative and love all things marketing, so being the head of marketing for a marketing company, and also a promotional consultant for clients is like heaven! In my spare time I enjoy golf, pretending to play guitar, my dogs, and travelling! I also have a philanthropic side, and any chance I can help make a ‘dent in the universe’ I do, whether it’s supporting local charities,building homes in Central America, or growing a moustache for Movember.

 

Lee Boyd, CEO

 

I started at Festival Promotions as the office receptionist and bookkeeper on a career path that included sales assistant and soon expanded to inside sales rep and eventually office manager. I guess I liked what I saw because, to quote a once-famous ad, “I bought the company.”

I am now the proud owner of a company in which I strongly believe (why else would I have bought it?). My experience with the company from the bottom up has given me valuable insight into the industry. As president of the company, my philosophy is to provide outstanding customer service and to develop strong relationships – we do that by making it fun to meet our clients’ marketing needs.My other loves include the outdoors. I am an avid gardener and golfer, and I'm also an Ottawa Senators fan.

Whatever your marketing needs, we have a fantastic talented and creative staff to help you every step of the way.

Patrick Hall, Account Manager

 

I graduated from Mount Allison University in 2009 with a B.A in Geography and Environmental Studies. After completing my B.A I moved to Ottawa, ON in hopes of utilizing my geographic and environmental skills. This is what brought me to Festival Promotions. My past working experiences taught me that I love marketing and building strong relationships with individuals and businesses while promoting the benefits of sustainable products. I knew that Festival Promotions would be a perfect fit because the company and I both value and believe in the benefits of sustainable products. I am happy to be a part of my client’s success while having fun throughout the whole process.

 

Riley Cavanagh, Account Manager


I was born and raised right here in Ottawa and have been a big part of the team at Festival since 2013. I began with Festival as a logistics coordinator and have since joined the account team. In my spare time I enjoy cottaging, camping, gourmet teas, craft beer and of course am a raving Ottawa Senators fan!

  • Josh Verch, Account Manager


  • Sports fanatic with a mind for creative marketing, and what better place to mesh my two passions other than at Festival Promotions! Having spent the better part of a decade working directly in sport marketing and sponsorship, I understand just how important getting your brand out there is. Promotional products are a powerful way for companies large or small to bring their brands to life through strategic giveaways and activations, and this is Festival Promotions’ bread and butter.  In my previous roles, Festival Promotions was a valued partner of mine in helping me reaching my marketing goals, and as now a member of the creative and dedicated Festival team, I look forward to being yours.

          I'm a hometown Ottawa girl and mother to a 13 year old son, Kyler and 1 year old Cedric. I studied admin at Algonquin and graduated with honours and have over 15 years experience in customer service. When I'm not meticulously ensuring every order is delivered and perfect I enjoy snowboarding, gardening, camping and occasionally driving Lamborghinis! 

         

         


         

        • Brianna Littau, Logistics Coordinator


          I have lived in Ottawa my whole life. I graduated from Algonquin College with a Diploma in Business Administration majoring in International Business.  I just recently joined the team here at Festival as the new Admin and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with such awesome people. I absolutely love travelling and experiencing new things. In my spare time I enjoy skiing & snowboarding, hiking, running, relaxing by the lake and socializing with friends and family.
