Product Marketing Manager; Trucks
I’m Darren Halabisky, Product Marketing Manager for Ford of Canada. I am responsible for all of our Truck and Commercial vehicles at Ford of Canada. I get to spend my day talking about the coolest vehicles around; the ones that not only look great, but can always be counted on to get the job done. For me “Built Ford Tough” isn’t just a saying, but a mantra that I live up to with every decision made in our Truck and Commercial vehicle portfolios.
I started with Ford in Vancouver after graduating with a Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia. In my time with Ford I’ve lived in Edmonton, Calgary and most recently Oakville. During that journey I’ve spent countless nights in hotels around BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan, always diving into the local experience to get the most out of my visit.
