PR Agency Veteran Joins Tufts Health Plan Foundation as Communications Officer
WATERTOWN, MA - November 14, 2012 - The Tufts Health Plan Foundation announced today that it has hired Stacey Mann, previously executive vice president at Boston-based Greenough Communications, as its communications officer. Mann will spearhead all of the foundation’s communications efforts to sustain and build healthy aging programs; educate policy-makers, practitioners and the public at large about healthy aging issues; and promote collaborative activities for a healthy aging movement across Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
“This is an important time for the Tufts Health Plan Foundation as we double our efforts to promote healthy aging in our communities through education and awareness in addition to our core grant making,” said David Abelman, president of the Tufts Health Plan Foundation. “Stacey’s public relations acumen and years of experience in strategic planning will add depth to our team and help us communicate a powerful story in support of the critical cause of healthy aging.”
Mann has more than 15 years of experience across corporate communications, media relations, social and digital marketing, and content development. Prior to joining the Tufts Health Plan Foundation, Mann spent more than 10 years at Greenough, most recently running the account services division for the agency. Clients included Network Health, a subsidiary of Tufts Health Plan, as well as the Arbella Insurance Group Charitable Foundation.
“This role at the Tufts Health Plan Foundation is an incredible opportunity for me to help create a healthy aging movement through greater public awareness of the issues older adults face and the many programs across our communities that exist to address these needs,” said Mann. “I’m thrilled to join a team of people so passionate about improving the lives of older adults.”
Mann started her career and worked for five years at The Headline Group (now Edelman) in Atlanta, Ga. She earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Tufts University and currently resides in Lexington with her husband and two children.
