Announcement: Dawn Lupul to join Horse Racing Alberta

Written by Kent Verlik

I’m pleased to announce that Dawn Lupul is joining Horse Racing Alberta in the position of Director, Corporate Communications and Stakeholder Engagement effective October 15, 2022.

Dawn comes to us with decades of experience in the horse racing world, most notably as the well-respected voice of the Woodbine simulcast broadcast for ten years. She has participated in many facets of both thoroughbred and standardbred racing, not only as a broadcaster but also as an owner, breeder and trainer.

In this new role with HRA, Dawn will be responsible for HRA corporate communications, stakeholder relations and engagement initiatives. She will lead the development of a corporate communication strategy and and play a key role in public and industry stakeholder engagement, including:

  • helping to build positive relationships with all stakeholders,
  • increasing stakeholders’ knowledge of HRA’s mandate, vision, mission and values, and
  • consulting with stakeholders to co-create a renewed values-based culture in the Alberta horse racing industry

Dawn will also act as a liaison between Horse Racing Alberta and industry participants and will assist in sharing news and information that is important to our partners. She will report directly to the Chief Executive Officer.

As a result of this new addition to our Executive Team, the position title for Jeff Robillard is being changed to Director, Marketing and Promotions. This change reflects our new approach to co-operative and collaborative marketing with our stakeholders, including the promotion of new programs, products and initiatives.

Please join me in welcoming Dawn to Horse Racing Alberta!

Kent Verlik
Chief Executive Officer
