The Baltimore Chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) announced its executive board for the 2016-2017 chapter year, led by incoming president Dov Hoffman of Right Source Marketing, a leader of the chapter since 2009.
In addition to Hoffman, several other executive board members will return for 2016-2017. Joe Wagner, past-president for 2015-2016 will return as a board member, and Eileen Gwin will serve as immediate past-president. Philippe Lerner, vice president of finance, and Seth Geller, vice president of sponsorship, will both remain in their roles for 2016-2017.
Kevin Stever joins the executive board as secretary. The chapter’s previous secretary, Mira Lares, will take on the newly created role of vice president of mentorship and professional development. Lares will work to implement a mentorship program pairing young marketing professionals with seasoned executives from the Baltimore area in a guided series designed to advance their careers and professional growth.
Liz Breaux will return for a second year as vice president of programming. During her first term, Breaux implemented several new programs for AMA Baltimore, including the #AMAMingle Networking Series, unique networking opportunities held at marketing agencies throughout Baltimore City.
Joining the board as vice president of membership is Linda Gordon Gilmore, who previously served as the assistant vice president of membership. Takisha Toler, Ph.D. will assume the role of vice president of collegiate relations vacated by Hoffman. As an assistant professor of marketing at Stevenson University, Toler offers a special insight into the needs of the chapter’s collegiate members. Christina Grieves joins the board as vice president of marketing and communications, having previously held roles as the assistant vice president of communications and social media volunteer.
