"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.

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.

Witt also oversees the facility operations of the New York office.
