Ken Whittingham was born in Montreal on June 10, 1950. He attended Loyola College and worked on its weekly newspaper, the Loyola News, first as a reporter in 1967, then as desk and news editor in 1968-69, and associate editor in 1969-70. He became editor-in-chief in the fall of 1970. He graduated with a BA (Cum Laude) in Political Science in 1971.

From 1970 to 1979 he worked for the Montreal Star as a reporter and re-write editor covering the fields of education, health and social services. From 1978 to 1980, he was subsequently the Québec and Canadian correspondent for Washington D.C’s Chronicle of Higher Education. As such, he edited a weekly column on political, scientific and research developments and wrote articles about university and junior college education. During that period he also taught political science courses in the Continuing Education Department at Dawson College and worked as a story editor for CBC television Public Affairs programs. In 1980 he became a Public Relations Officer at McGill University, leaving in 1982 to join Concordia University’s Public Relations department as Assistant Director.

Ken Whittingham was named Concordia’s Public Relations Interim Director in 1984 and became Director in 1987. He developed marketing and communications strategies and co-chaired several key committees that oversaw the university’s communications and public relations activities.

After leaving Concordia in 1996 Mr. Whittingham became the Director of Communications and Research at Development and Peace, a position he held for ten years.
