Carly Grace

Director of Sales

Carly was born in Ottawa but spent the better part of her childhood growing up overseas. Carly completed her undergraduate education at Queen’s University and promptly moved to Whistler, BC where her passion for the hospitality industry began.  While working for The Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler, she concurrently completed her Master of Business Administrative through Guelph University. Following the completion of her MBA, Carly was fortunate to be offered a position with Vancouver Organizing Committee during the 2010 Olympic Games, managing emergency response planning for both athletes’ villages. Following the Olympics, Carly was drawn back to Ottawa to be closer to her family and quickly re-established her place in the hospitality sector with The Westin Ottawa. Throughout her career with the Westin, Carly held the positions of Sales Manager, Event Manager, Director of Group Sales and Director of Events. Prior to joining the Shaw Centre in December 2019, Carly had the opportunity to revitalize her destination sell as the Director of Sales with JPdL, a local destination management company.

A common theme throughout all of Carly’s work experience has been a dedication to delivering incredible guest experiences and exceeding client expectations.

In her spare time, she enjoys swimming, dabbling in the world of triathlons, hitting the gym and spending quality time with her family and friends.
