We are excited to announce Riley County has hired a talented professional with close to 20 years of diverse communication experience for the newly established Riley County Public Information Officer role.

 

Alice Massimi, who started on January 12th, joins us from Washington, D.C. She is already working closely with our health and emergency officials to ensure critical information and updates concerning the Coronavirus Pandemic response are reaching the community.

 

As the Public Information Officer, Alice will coordinate and manage public affairs programs across Riley County departments and services.

 

“Alice is an experienced communications leader with a proven record of getting important information out to the public through storytelling and citizen engagement,” County Clerk Rich Vargo said. “We are confident she will consistently help tell Riley County’s story and inform people throughout our county.” 

 

Before coming here, Massimi was Executive Producer of Connecting Vets, a Radio.com company focused on providing news and resources for the veteran community. She is an award-winning reporter and an experienced Strategic Communications professional with a proven track record in effective storytelling and communication planning through the use of analytics and targeted stakeholder engagement. Most recently, she earned a Master’s degree in Strategic Communication from American University. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Broadcasting and Mass Communication from the State University of New York at Oswego and a professional certificate in Social Media Management from Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies.

 

“I am passionate about people and helping to connect them to the information they need,” Massimi said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of Riley County through crisis and daily communication.”

 

Continued open communication is critical in maintaining trust in local government. Through this new position, we will continue enhancing our ability to provide important information to the people we serve and build on the foundation of trust already established in Riley County.
