TalkSwitch VP wins business award

Kim Dixon is named 2006’s Kim%20Dixon.jpgOttawa Businesswoman of the Year, Corporate category, at the 24th annual Women’s Business Network awards gala at the Ottawa Congress Centre. Vice president of marketing at telephony company TalkSwitch, Kim was singled out for her “professional success and dedication to family.” Gracious in victory, she congratulated finalists Robin McIntyre of Rogers Communications and Caroline Crowe of EDS Canada, “gifted leaders in their field and a true inspiration to me and to all businesspeople.” “Kim has overseen an aggressive new approach to the marketing of TalkSwitch products,” says a company spokesperson. “In the past year she and her team have transformed the TalkSwitch brand, completely revamping the corporate website to improve access to information for customers and partners while maintaining a premium web ranking.” Kim was nominated after it was determined she met all five criteria for the award: proven business acumen, leadership skills, professional achievement, community involvement and demonstration of a balanced lifestyle. During her 17 years in the technology sector, Kim has distinguished herself in marketing positions at Corel, Hill & Knowlton, Hemera Technologies, and now TalkSwitch. She is an active supporter of Junior Achievement Eastern Ontario, an Ambassador’s Circle member with the Community Foundation’s Engage Program and is a member of CATA’s Women in Technology forum. Kim participates in the Leadership Forum at the University of Ottawa’s School of Management, and is the proud and dedicated mother of two young children.
