Senior Director of Public & Player Relations
Darren Cameron enters his tenth season with the Winnipeg Football Club as Senior Director of Public & Player Relations. Since 2009 he has been an integral part of the franchise, overseeing the team’s communications department and playing a key role in player relations.
After joining the Blue Bombers as Media Relations Coordinator, Cameron moved up the ranks to Director of Communications & Public Relations in less than a year and in 2018, was promoted to Senior Director of Public & Player Relations, accumulating over 12 years of experience in professional sports along the way.
From the opening of Investors Group Field in 2013 and a new logo reveal that same year, to the 103rd Grey Cup and a new uniform launch in 2016, Cameron has spearheaded the communications strategy and implementation for the club through numerous franchise milestones.
Over the course of his nine years in the Canadian Football League, Cameron has forged many strong working relationships with players across the league, allowing him the unique position of assisting General Manager Kyle Walters in overseeing football operations and helping with player retention and acquisitions while balancing his role as head of the communications department.
Working closely with the coaches, players, and the General Manager on a daily basis, Cameron has his finger on the pulse of the team and writes from an informed and privy perspective in his blog, Behind the Blue & Gold. Providing exceptional insight into the Club’s inner workings and day-to-day developments, Cameron is an excellent spokesperson for the franchise.
Born and raised in Winnipeg, his knowledge of the franchise and its attachment to the community is second to none, and he strives to continue growing the Club’s outreach in Winnipeg and beyond.
