Vice President's Office
Vice President, Marketing & Communications
Steve leads efforts to build the university’s global reputation for excellence, improve communications throughout the campus community and shape the newly formed division of Marketing & Communications. Steve came to CMU from the University of Chicago, where he was associate vice president for News and Public Affairs, following a 21-year career in journalism at the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers. Steve has sailed to Greenland in a schooner, traveled the Holy Land with a pope and sampled cheeseburgers with a president. But, all in all, he’d prefer to stand in a river, casting dry flies to rising trout.
