University of the Pacific today announced the appointment of Margery L. Grey, longtime chief marketing strategist for the California State University system, as associate vice president for marketing and communications, following a nationwide search. She will assume the post on March 21.

“I am extremely happy to welcome this accomplished senior leader to the Pacific family,” said President Pamela A.

She will help us share the unique and inspiring story of University of the Pacific with the world, enhancing our external reputation as well as our internal communication.”

Grey has served as assistant vice chancellor for communications for the 23-campus CSU system, the largest university system in the country, since 1999. She led, integrated and aligned the work of the campuses in marketing, branding, web, digital and social media, video and print publications, outreach and special events to increase stakeholder support through measurable programs.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the leadership, faculty, staff and students to build University of the Pacific’s reputation as the premier teaching-focused university in California and beyond,” Grey said. “I am proud to join a university that meets the diverse needs of students with such outstanding teaching and scholarship in such a deeply supportive and engaging environment.”

In her new role, Grey will serve as a member of President Eibeck’s leadership team and as a strategic adviser to the university.  She is charged with leading and advancing the branding, marketing and communications strategy and programs for the university.
