Director of Communications
As Director of Communications, Amon is responsible for overseeing all aspects of Foundation-related communications, from the new (140 characters and such) to the traditional (media relations, etc) and everything in between.
For the past decade Amon has worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, where his responsibilities spanned communications, event management and special project work in support of the BCBSNC Foundation, corporate community relations, executive leadership and sales and marketing.
Prior to BCBSNC, Amon oversaw marketing and communications for the North Carolina Healthy Start Foundation in Raleigh, and before finding his way south, he worked in public relations and event management in Washington, DC.
Amon is a graduate of West Virginia Wesleyan College.
What I love about my work:
The opportunity to interact with people who have quite literally dedicated their lives to the communities and people of North Carolina.
When not at my desk:
I generally can be found with my wife and two amazing children or actively searching for great food or a good movie.
Favorite thing about North Carolina:
While not born here…it is home.
