About Paul Nixey

Paul Nixey is a strategic communications expert and crisis specialist with more than 20 years’ experience in reputation management, marketing, public relations, and digital communications. He is known for cutting through the noise and focussing audiences on what really matters—the message, and the call to action.

Nixey’s early learnings in brand management were at Starbucks Coffee Company, slinging lattes at age 16, and then holding multiple positions in the company’s operations and marketing divisions, finally landing in Toronto as the company’s first-ever National Marketing Coordinator. After Starbucks, he relocated to Seoul and spent two years as an on-air presenter for the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation—South Korea’s leading television and radio network.

Returning to Canada, he served as Director of Communications to a Canadian Member of Parliament, and later as Director of Communications for the Mayor of Vancouver’s political party. Since 2008, he’s worked as a consultant specializing in reputation management, crisis communications, and public relations. His client portfolio includes public health, real estate, aviation, labour unions, elected officials, and non-profits.

Nixey studied Communications and Women’s Studies at Capilano University. He guest lectures at Simon Fraser University’s public relations program, and coaches at the University of British Columbia’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs. He was named Best behind-the-scenes LGBTQ publicist in the Georgia Straight’s Best Of Vancouver awards. Nixey served five years as a Director at the Vancouver Friends for Life Society, and was the co-chair/CEO of the Vision Vancouver Elector Association for five years, including their successful 2011 and 2014 elections. He is a member of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.

Based in Vancouver, Nixey does not watch baseball, but just really likes hats.
