Dan Kim has been named the new vice president for communications at the College of the Holy Cross. He will assume his responsibilities on April 1, according to Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president of the College.

“We are pleased to welcome Dan to Holy Cross in this new role on our executive team,” said Fr. Boroughs. “Dan has deep experience in directing integrated communications and marketing efforts at higher education institutions, professional associations and media organizations, as well as the proven ability to build and lead teams of talented, creative individuals. We look forward to his leadership in effectively telling our Holy Cross story and communicating the hallmarks of the distinctive Jesuit, liberal arts education that we provide.”

Kim is currently the executive director of communications and marketing at University of Michigan College of Engineering. He has been leading strategic marketing communications for more than 20 years in for-profit, nonprofit and higher education organizations, working at his alma mater, University of Michigan, since 2010. Prior to returning to Michigan, he directed news and information for West Virginia University, where he served as chief spokesperson for the university and led strategic integrated marketing initiatives and crisis communications.

A graduate of University of Michigan Law School, Kim served as deputy executive director of the State Bar of Michigan from 1996-2000 and editor and publisher of the ABA Journal for the American Bar Association from 2000-2005. He held a variety of editing, publishing and media-related roles earlier in his career, and worked for two years as a litigation attorney for Clark Hill, one of Michigan’s largest law firms. He began his career in writing and production at WDIV-TV4 in Detroit.

“I am extremely honored to have been selected for this leadership role,” Kim said. “It is an exciting time to be a communications professional, and I am looking forward to bringing my background and experience to Holy Cross. I have been very impressed with the College and with the individuals whom I have met. I simply cannot wait to get to Worcester and get to work.”

Kim will be the first to hold this newly created vice president role at Holy Cross, and will serve as a member of the president’s executive leadership team and cabinet. He will report directly to Fr. Boroughs and will oversee strategic communications and marketing, as well as government and community relations for the College.
