Stony Brook has announced a new vice president for marketing and communications.

William Warren will lead all marketing and communications for Stony Brook University's academic and research enterprise, Stony Brook Medicine, and Stony Brook Medicine Healthcare System, starting September 13.

"I am absolutely delighted to have Bill join Stony Brook University at this critical juncture," Stony Brook University President, Maurie McInnis, said in a statement. "Bill is a proven leader who, in addition to his deep experience in higher education, brings a broad range of expertise from both the political and corporate worlds. As we emerge from an incredibly difficult year, I am thrilled to have Bill join our team as we launch bold, new initiatives and forge exciting, strategic partnerships."

Warren previously served as the University of Utah's first chief marketing and communications officer for a decade, where he built a marketing and communications team to launch crisis communications, issues management, digital strategy, and creative services. He also served as interim chief marketing and communications officer for the University of Utah's healthcare system and health sciences colleges.

Prior to that, he served as vice president of communications at CA Technologies, an independent software corporation.

"I am so pleased to be coming back to New York, to support President McInnis and her team as they showcase the excellence of Stony Brook — a true catalyst for social and economic change in the region and beyond," Warren said in a statement. "Stony Brook has a great story to tell and I’m enthusiastic about what lies ahead in the next chapter of this great institution — New York’s greatest public university."
