Web Communications Teams

Posted by on Monday, November 2, 2015 in Info.

We’re excited to share with you some changes that are occurring within Web Communications. We have all seen our group come together into a team over the past two years (since the web merger); the knowledge sharing and synergies of having all of the web-focused staff together have been made evident time and again. We know now, more than ever,  that managing everything that is web at Vanderbilt is most definitely a team effort!  So many different skillsets are needed in order to keep things moving, and to be sure we are always striving to push things to the next level.

In support of those goals, we have now formalized a team, reporting to Beth Fox, that will take a more defined lead with content strategy (including social media) and project management.

Three staff members have been made a part of this team – Chris Craig, Jenny Mandeville and Anna Whinnery.  Their day-to-day responsibilities will not be changing – their roles are simply more defined now and they now will report to Beth.

A bare-bones breakdown of how the two Web Communications teams will work is below:
