This summer, several staffing changes occurred on the shared services marketing and communication team. Stephen Jendraszak is now associate vice president and chief marketing officer, overseeing the full area (at Augsburg, he is also responsible for the University Events department). Laura Swanson Lindahl, previously assistant director of marketing management, has moved into Stephen’s former role as director of marketing and now leads the marketing team, which is responsible for publications, web properties, and advertising. Gita Sitaramiah, director of public relations and internal communication, oversees the team responsible for media relations, issues management, and social media.
Finally, as previously announced, Jennifer Thiel has moved from Seminary Relations to the marketing team as the web and e-mail coordinator. She will resume that role when she returns from leave later this fall.
