The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD, seeks a strategic, visionary, and energetic professional to lead the museum’s Marketing & Communications department. In 2016, the museum launched an ambitious new strategic plan. To energize its audiences and reflect this new vision, the Marketing and Communications team created a new brand identity and website that will launch in spring 2018. The Walters now seeks a visionary marketing and communications leader who can raise the museum’s profile as a destination and cultural anchor in the greater Baltimore and Washington region.
This position is responsible for the planning and oversight of all marketing and communications-related functions within the museum. This includes the development and implementation of a comprehensive strategy that will serve to define and enhance public perceptions of the museum, deliver key institutional messages, increase awareness of collections, exhibitions, and programs, and increase visitation both on-site and online. The Director leads a team of approximately seven professionals, guiding the day-to-day operations of the team and aligning their work with other divisions within the museum.
The Director of Marketing Communications reports to the Deputy Director of Museum Advancement. The Advancement Division encompasses Marketing and Communications, Development, and Visitor Services, and aims to attract, welcome, and expand audiences and supporters to the museum.
