Salk Institute appoints new communications chief

The Salk Institute for Biological Studies announced Tuesday it has hired Anna-Marie Rooney as its chief communications officer.

She will oversee all aspects of the institute's communications efforts, including strategy, print publications, media relations, electronic and web communications, social media outreach, and multimedia resources.

Rooney most recently served as the vice president, chief strategy and brand officer for the San Diego Foundation, the largest community foundation in the San Diego region.

During the course of six years, she created, organized and implemented the marketing and communication strategies and tactics for the foundation, including the successful oversight and management of all promotional and public relations efforts for the "Our Greater San Diego Vision" initiative, which resulted in 30,000 participants, $3.5 million in media exposure, and 386 million media impressions.
