Nancy Davidge, who has served as interim public affairs officer since June, has been hired for the long term.
“Nancy proved herself extraordinarily capable during her tenure as our interim, and I’m truly excited she’s joining us full time,” said the Rev. Geoffrey Smith, the church’s chief operating officer. “We had a number of highly qualified candidates for this position, but Nancy’s strategic thinking, and her years of expertise working with the press and communicators across the Episcopal Church have earned her respect and trust from around the Church.”
Davidge most recently served as principal of the Davidge Group, which offers strategic marketing and communications services to help organizations and businesses tailor their messages to specific audiences.
She began her career working for the Girl Scouts, and then spent 20 years in senior-level marketing and communications positions for regional and national healthcare companies.
Davidge then made a career shift to educational institutions, including Episcopal Divinity School, where she served as director of marketing and communication for eight years before joining the Episcopal Church Foundation as founding editor of Vital Practices in 2010.
