(December 05, 2022) Dallas-based executive search and leadership consulting firm Bryant Group, conducted a nationwide search resulting in Jack Martin securing the role of Vice President for Marketing and Communications at the University of Washington (UW).
“I came to the search as an internal candidate and Bryant Group’s John Toolan provided vital guidance on how to present myself in a way that would allow the interviewers to see my full experience, not just the part of my career that has been at the UW. I don’t know that I would have been successful in this search without his advice and counsel. Plus, he’s a delight to work with and kept me informed every step of the way,” said Mr. Martin.
A distinguished and dedicated communication professional, Mr. Martin has served in all aspects of communications and marketing for elected officials and higher education organizations. He most recently served as the Associate Vice President for Communications at the University of Washington. Prior to that, he served in strategic communications roles at the University of Kansas, the Kansas governor’s office, for a member of Congress and in legislative caucuses in two states.
Based in Seattle, one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities, the University’s success is interwoven with the city. Thousands of UW alumni and adopted Huskies have partnered with the UW to develop the business, industrial and creative legacy of the Puget Sound region. Home to Amazon, REI, Microsoft, Boeing, Costco and Starbucks, the Seattle area offers a vibrant, innovative and fast-paced environment.
