NC State Poole College of Management recently appointed Andrea Young as the new associate director of marketing for the Jenkins Graduate Management Programs effective July 1. She will be backfilling for the position that was previously held by Jenny Hammond, the current Chief Marketing and Communications Officer for Poole College.
In her new role, Young will strengthen the Jenkins portfolio of graduate programs and certificates through integrated marketing and communications strategies, encourage community engagement and admissions growth, and provide direction for the launch of future one-year professional programs and graduate certificates. She will be collaborating with the NC State University Communications and Poole College Marketing and Communications teams.
“Andrea is an excellent addition to the Marketing and Communications team at Poole,” said Hammond. “The graduate programs continue to be an area of growth for the college and Andrea’s rich history with the Master of Accounting program will be a tremendous asset to our team. She is thoughtful, creative and always willing to roll up her sleeves to get the job done….all traits of a great team player. I look forward to the work that Andrea will provide to the unit and the overall mission of the college.”
Young previously served as the associate director of the Jenkins Master of Accounting Program and has been with the college since 2006.
Young received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and a Master of Education in higher education administration from Boston University.
