Widmeyer Communications Announces Five Staff Promotions

Scott Widmeyer, Chairman and CEO of Widmeyer Communications (www.widmeyer.com), recently announced the promotion of five staff members. "Our firm’s strength is grounded in the talent and hard work of our staff and I am pleased to recognize five individuals’ contributions to our success," noted Widmeyer.

David Brennan was promoted to the position of finance director. Brennan joined Widmeyer in 2009 and works closely with the firm’s practice groups.

Crystal Brown is now a senior vice president in the PreK-12 Education practice. With a dozen years of experience in education communications, Brown leads the firm’s efforts in supporting a robust portfolio of projects with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, including major partnerships with NBC’s Education Nation and MSNBC’s Making the Grade. She also leads the firm’s work with the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.

Peter Hahn was promoted to senior vice president of the firm’s Digital & Creative group. Marking his 10th year with Widmeyer, Hahn has enhanced the firm’s creative operation, and with his expertise, helps to keep Widmeyer several steps ahead of the digital and social communications industry. Hahn provides creative support for several prominent clients like the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, HRSA’s Stop Bullying Now! campaign and the National Assessment Governing Board.

Andre Witt is now Widmeyer’s vice president for operations. Following his handling of the relocation of the firm’s Washington office two years ago, Witt continues to make improvements to the facilities through his oversight of computer technicians and critical vendors. Witt also oversees the facility operations of the New York office.

Rachel Zaentz was promoted to senior account manager. Also a member of Widmeyer’s PreK-12 Education practice, Zaentz plays a key role in Widmeyer’s work with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Partnership for 21st Century Skills, and Data Quality Campaign.
