Amanda Young

Director of Hospitality Services

Amanda is originally from the East Coast and grew up outside of St. John’s Newfoundland. Her love for hospitality and adventure brought her to the Rocky Mountains where she worked at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge for nine years. It was in Jasper that Amanda took on many leadership roles throughout the hotel which helped her build a foundation in customer service and managing events.

In 2014, Amanda moved to Ottawa and started working at the Shaw Centre in the Operations Department and most recently as the Senior Operations Manager. Over the past 5 years she has been a dedicated member of the team and has managed many events including the 2017 Grey Cup and the Juno Awards. Amanda is delighted to be taking the next step and overseeing the Operations Department to be able to use her experience to continue to manage the some of the most exciting events in the city.  In her spare time, Amanda enjoys making pottery, travelling and spends time volunteering at the Ottawa Food Bank.
