Turcke is no stranger to Bell, having worked as EVP of field operations for Bell Canada, leading a team of about 12,000 technicians, internal service representatives and managers to deliver telecommunications services to the company’s residential and business customers.

In her new role at Bell Media, Turcke will oversee media sales for all of the company’s conventional and English-language specialty TV services, radio, OOH and digital properties. In addition, she will look after sales, marketing and brand partnerships at the national and local levels.

Turcke will be splitting her time between Bell Media’s 50 Eglinton Ave. office in Toronto and its 1800 McGill College Ave. office in Montreal, and starts in the position immediately.
