Amy Miner will serve as Beaverton's new public information manager.
She will join Mayor Rob Drake's staff on Feb. 29.
In the newly created position, Miner will be responsible for the city's public information program, working to enhance community and citizen relations and improve access to city services.
'We are very fortunate to have someone of Amy's background and expertise come on board,' said Drake, who made the announcement Wednesday evening. 'Amy brings a fresh and positive perspective - she will be a welcome addition to the city of Beaverton.'
An Oregon native, Miner is currently vice president and director of communications at Phoenix House, the nation's largest non-profit substance abuse treatment provider, where she leads marketing and communication efforts.
From 1999 to 2006, she served as assistant director, publications and a senior communications manager for New York City's official tourism marketing organization, NYC and Company, where she was responsible for production of the city's tourism marketing materials as well as media relations.
This position marks a return to Oregon for Miner, who was previously employed by the Portland Oregon Visitors Association and Baugh Construction. She holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from Oregon State University.
'I'm delighted to be returning home to Oregon and to have the opportunity to bring my experience and enthusiasm to work for the city of Beaverton,' Miner said.
