Mississauga, Ont.—February 14th, 2018—Cox Automotive Canada is pleased to announce the recent hire of Sarah Miller, as Manager, Public Relations and Corporate Communications. Reporting directly to Maria Soklis, President of Cox Automotive Canada, Miller will develop and execute effective communications and media relations programs, while increasing awareness of Cox Automotive Canada’s corporate image.
“We are very excited to welcome Sarah Miller to our Leadership Team,” said Maria Soklis, President of Cox Automotive Canada. “Sarah’s breadth of experience, exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, along with her professionalism, will clearly serve as an asset to Cox Automotive Canada. As our team looks to continue to transform the way the world buys, sells and owns cars, our goal is to ensure we have the right people in place to cultivate trust and nurture relationships within the industry.”
Miller, who attended Penn State on an NCAA Division 1 scholarship, graduated from Seneca@York University’s Broadcast Journalism program. She is a former television news anchor, radio personality and newspaper columnist, who spent twenty years working as a broadcaster in various Canadian markets before making the move to public relations. Along the way, Miller has worked for Global TV, where she co-hosted the morning show, anchoring sports and weather. Following a promotion, she spent time on the Montreal Canadiens’ sports beat as a Habs reporter, before returning home to Ontario to host a show for CHUM-FM and anchor the evening news for Roger’s CityTV. During two decades spent in the broadcasting industry, Miller was afforded numerous opportunities that included years with Toronto’s Q107 and Kitchener’s CTV Bell Media, while also writing for the Montreal Gazette, the National Post, and Vanity fair.
During the spring of 2015, she was hired to work for Athletics Ontario ahead of the 2015 Pan Am Games as their Public Relations Lead. Miller was, additionally, contracted by other sport governing bodies – including gymnastics and badminton – to spearhead all public and media relations initiatives until shortly after the 2016 Rio Olympics. Time spent working in the not-for-profit sector also included a year at Dog Guides Canada as the organization’s Communications and Media Relations Manager. Thanks to experience and a background in investigative journalism, Miller has been able to make a seamless and natural transition to a career in public relations.
