Over the past few weeks, University Relations has welcomed Paul Marck, UBC’s newest Media Relations Coordinator, and Darren Handschuh, who will work with the campus community until May 2012 while assistant communications coordinator Jody Jacob is away on maternity leave.
After serving as the primary media contact on the Okanagan campus for the past six years, Bud Mortenson is now focusing on communications and marketing projects for various UBC departments and faculties. Joining him in this new service is Chris Bowerman, who recently joined our team as a communications and marketing strategist.
