ARRM is excited to announce the coming addition of Drew Henry who will join the organization as Communications Director beginning August 1.
Drew brings to ARRM a broad background of communications and public affairs experience. Over the past five years as a consultant at the strategic communications firm Tunheim, he has led numerous successful public policy campaigns in both the education and health and human services sectors, most recently serving as campaign manager of a coalition securing more than $100 million in new funding for early childhood development support. His experience building broad coalitions and integrating communications, grassroots advocacy and government relations will be a valuable addition for ARRM.
“I am very honored and pleased to be able to take on this role with ARRM and its members at such a critical time for the industry,” said Drew. “I look forward to helping ensure the policy environment, and public environment, are positive and supportive spaces to ensure the people we serve have access to the best services possible.”
In addition to developing and executing effective communications campaigns, Drew has worked with numerous clients on a variety of strategic communications initiatives, including crisis communications and public positioning. Working with organizations of all sizes, from all sectors including residential service providers, Drew will be a critical addition as ARRM sophisticates and integrates effective communications strategies into all areas of our work.
“We believe Drew brings the right set of experience and passion to our organization at the best possible time, and we are excited to work with him,” said Bruce Nelson, ARRM CEO.
