Hewlett Foundation Appoints New Director of Communications

Thursday, January 8, 2015

NCG Member The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation announced yesterday the appointment of Vidya Krishnamurthy as the Foundation's Director of Communications.

Krishnamurthy comes to the Hewlett Foundation after nearly a decade with the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C., most recently as its communications director. During that time, she helped the center significantly expand its U.S. and global audience and become one of the most trusted and widely cited sources of nonpartisan information about trends shaping America and the world.

“Vidya is a fantastic addition to our team,” said Hewlett Foundation President Larry Kramer. “Effective communication is critical to every aspect of philanthropy, and Vidya brings a unique skill set and deep understanding of today’s complex communications environment, which will enhance both our work and that of our grantees.”

Please join us in welcoming Vidya to her new position and to the NCG community.
