Nancy Jones has been named the new Vice President of Marketing and Communications at NHPR. Jones joins the NHPR staff with more than 20 years of fundraising, communications and marketing experience.
As a consultant based in Miami Beach, Jones worked with nonprofit and foundation clients on branding, strategy and goal setting. Prior to running her own consultancy, she held the role of Vice President of Development, Communications and Public Affairs at The Miami Foundation in Miami, FL. Here she rebranded and repositioned the organization and raised more than $20 million a year.
“We are happy to welcome Nancy to NHPR and the Granite State,” said Betsy Gardella, NHPR President and CEO. “We are confident her leadership will help us grow and further improve our position as the news leader for New Hampshire.”
“I am very excited to join such a talented team,” said Jones. “NHPR has many dedicated and engaged listeners. The opportunity to work with them to grow the station, in today’s fragmented media market, is in large part why I have moved here with my family.”
Jones has always given back to her communities, both personally and professionally. She has served on boards and committees of such as Greater Miami and the Keys American Red Cross, Leadership Monroe County, Council on Foundations and the Florida Philanthropic Network, among others. She is currently pursuing her Master’s Degree in Communication and Media Studies from Penn State University.
