New Communications Director Joins Advisory Council on Historic Preservation Staff
WASHINGTON, D.C. —Susan A. Glimcher has been named director of the Office of Communications, Education, and Outreach for the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP). She begins work January 7, 2008.
“We welcome the experience and skills Susan brings to the ACHP,” said John M. Fowler, ACHP executive director. “We look forward to her contributions as we continue to expand our communications efforts.”
Glimcher has worked in New York and Connecticut in advertising and marketing for companies such as Jameson Advertising and New Line Cinema. Since 2000, Glimcher has worked in Washington, D.C., supporting strategic communications for companies such as Lockheed Martin Global Telecommunications (a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin), and directing the strategy and implementation of projects such as the creation of a new, multi-lingual Web site following the merger of three companies.
Since 2003, Glimcher has served in a contractor capacity for the Bureau of Consular Affairs within the U.S. Department of State. In two positions with the Department, she created and implemented branding, marketing, and internal and external communications programs and projects, including leading the launch of www.travel.state.gov, the public facing Web site for the Bureau of Consular Affairs. Glimcher also brings experience in customer relationship management.
Glimcher succeeds Sharon S. Conway, the ACHP’s former communications director, who retired from federal service October 31, 2007.
