Donna MacNeil is the new president of ChizComm Ltd., a full-service marketing and communications agency based in Toronto. She joined the company in 2017, most recently serving as senior vice president of marketing. Her promotion takes effect immediately.

In her new role, Donna will oversee and spearhead business development, marketing, and digital media at ChizComm, which recently acquired Beacon Media, one of the most trusted names in media buying and planning for children’s consumer products and entertainment. Together, both companies provide leadership and marketing expertise to top brands in the toy, consumer product and entertainment space. 

“Donna has been extremely instrumental in our growth, vision, and success, and I couldn’t be more excited for her to take on an even larger leadership role,” says Harold Chizick, CEO of ChizComm Ltd. “As ChizComm heads into its next phase of growth, we are so fortunate to have Donna to help lead the company as president and be a larger part of shaping our vision and path for the future.”

Prior to her time at ChizComm, Donna served as vice president and group publisher of KidScreen and senior director of communications and promotional marketing for Spin Master.

The first quarter has been a busy one for ChizComm with appointments at Beacon Media and the addition of new clients such as Wow! Stuff and Headstart International.
