A former leader of the Housing and Food Services Communications and Marketing department at the University of Washington, Hall has experience successfully managing complex marketing plans. During her 15-year career, Hall also has filled marketing roles with health care systems like Loyola University Health System and City of Hope National Medical Center. Moreover, Hall has consulted for organizations like South Puget Sound Community College.

In her new role at Bellevue College, Hall will preside over all marketing and communications outreach while cultivating initiatives to engage the surrounding Bellevue community in campus life.

“Katherine is an experienced marketing and communications strategist with a substantive background in leading within large, mission-driven organizations,” said Dr. Gayle Barge, vice president of institutional advancement at the college. “She also brings an agency approach to branding for higher education institutions that’s been tremendously successful, and will help take our marketing and communications initiatives to the next level.”

Barge isn’t the only one looking forward to this change, Hall said she is eager to get started.

“Bellevue College offers an incredibly rich, inclusive experience for students and has a well-deserved reputation for innovation. I’m delighted to join the third-largest institution of higher education in Washington state and an award-winning marketing division,” Hall said. “I look forward to working closely with the Bellevue community and increasing awareness of all Bellevue College has to offer.”
