Dana Davis Rehm, a former NPR senior v.p. and public radio station manager, is joining the American Geophysical Union as its director of marketing.
Rehm left NPR in February after 13 years in various roles within the organization's executive ranks. Her departure was part of a restructuring within the marketing and communications division under former NPR chief Gary Knell.
Rehm began at NPR as v.p. of member and program services, a job that involved leading NPR's 2005–06 New Realities initiative. After a promotion to senior v.p. of strategy and partnerships, she helped manage its acquisition of Public Interactive from Public Radio International. During a 2008 staff restructuring, she was reassigned as senior v.p. of marketing, communications and external relations.
AGU is a nonprofit organization representing more than 62,000 Earth and space scientists. Rehm's new job will involve working with the union's staff, members and partners to create and execute integrated content strategies for the organization.
"AGU is uniquely positioned to convey the power of science and its role in shaping a healthy and sustainable world," Rehm said in a news release announcing the move. "I am thrilled to join a community that will play an increasingly critical role in addressing some of the most pressing problems that face humanity."
Prior to joining NPR, Rehm served as the g.m. of Wisconsin Public Radio and the assistant g.m. of Seattle's KUOW.
