Mark Giles, APR, is the manager of stakeholder relations and communications for Atomic Energy of Canada, based in Port Hope, ON. Previously, he was a senior communications advisor with the Privy Council Office – the bureaucratic arm of the Prime Minister’s Office – Public Safety Canada’s director for Vancouver 2010, communications director for the Canadian Forces Military Police and National Investigation Service, Interpol’s chief of communications in Lyon, France, and a regional military public affairs officer in Alberta and Eastern/Northern Ontario.
Before moving full time to the communications field, he was a police officer for 10 years with the Calgary Police Service. Raised in what some refer to as a mild cult, he left after working overseas in a “marketing/PR” role for the organization as a young adult. Interested in how cults, corporations and other organizations sometimes blend facts, figures and even flat-out propaganda to sell their messages and merchandise, recruit and retain members, and attract funding and donations for various ventures, Mark closely follows the research and activities of several groups dedicated to corporate transparency and post-cult recovery.
