City Welcomes Caribou Native as New Events & Marketing Coordinator
The City of Caribou is pleased to announce the hiring of Caribou native Christina Kane-Gibson as the new Events & Marketing Coordinator.
Ms. Kane-Gibson is a 1997 graduate of Caribou High School, a 2001 graduate of Boston University and has spent the past 13 years working In Promotions & Marketing for the FOX owned television station in Austin, Texas (2003-2014) and as the Public Information Officer for the City of Hutto, Texas (2014-2017).
I am so excited to be back home,” Ms. Kane-Gibson said. “I’ve loved my time in Texas, but Caribou is where we want to be. During the past two years I worked closely with the Hutto [Texas] Downtown Manager and earned a true appreciation for community supported events as a key to economic vitality. With top-notch promotion and strategic marketing, we can enhance the economic base of Caribou and The County… and have a ton of fun in the process!”

This is a project that I am passionate about and I am very excited to work with you.”
