Meet Carmel Lysak, our shiny new Media Buyer. 

Carmel was born to work in media. Her dad is a Saskatchewan newspaper veteran and her mom was an advertising director for the Estevan Mercury – we’re betting she had a paper route. Her career journey began at Minot State University, studying Marketing and Management. 

Carmel carved out a 9-year career at the Saskatoon StarPhoenix, before working agency-side in Saskatoon for over a decade. She’s also an agriculture brand expert, with media experience in equipment manufacturing, chemicals and seed.

We know Carmel has got it going on in the organization department. She has three kids—all active in different sports—and she loves nothing more than watching them play, wherever that may be. When she’s not supporting her kids, or making media magic, she (somehow) finds time to volunteer for hockey and volleyball.

Carmel’s travelled, vacationed and lived all over Saskatchewan – from Melfort to Meadow Lake and Estevan to Assiniboia. When it comes to the prairies, she’s an expert. Carmel’s looking forward to getting to know Regina a little better, starting with a visit to the RCMP Heritage Centre and Casino Regina.
