Pacific Lutheran University’s vice president for marketing and communications since 2013, Donna Gibbs, will be moving to Western Washington University later this month.

Her selection as VP for university relations and marketing at the state’s regional comprehensive university came following a national search.

Prior to her 2013 arrival at the Parkland campus of Pacific Lutheran, Gibbs spent more than 30 years in global marketing work for brands such as Nike, Mattel, Apple and Microsoft. At PLU, she managed a team of 24 in managing a $3.4 million budget.
