A St. Clair College grad has been named by Canadian magazine, Marketing, as one of this year’s Top 30 Under 30 advertising professionals across the country.

Celia Gibb, 28, graduated from St. Clair’s Advertising & Marketing Communications Management program in 2010 and is thrilled about Marketing magazine’s honour.

“It’s very surreal to be part of Marketing’s 30 Under 30,” says Gibb. She explains that every year, Marketing magazine pores through hundreds of nominations to narrow the list down to 30 individuals under 30 years whose resumés “read like those of seasoned vets.”

“To be honest, I am touched that someone even thought to nominate me, let alone to actually place in the final list,” says Gibb, who is currently a Supervisor for Communications Strategies for m2 Canada.

Gibb says it was immensely important to her that her St. Clair instructors had many years of actual advertising experience.

“The real-world advice throughout the program was so invaluable,” explains Gibb. “Each course really brought the material to life with practical assignments and an honest perspective from someone who worked in the industry. Five years later, I’m still in contact with my teachers and I know I can still turn to them for guidance.”
