A New Voice for Communications

David Sandor

David Sandor joined Emory as senior vice president of communications and public affairs in March.

“I am very pleased to announce Mr. Sandor’s appointment,” says President Claire E. Sterk. “David brings extensive experience in communications and government relations to our talented team here at Emory. He is a proven, thoughtful leader who values teamwork in a collegial, productive, and strategically driven environment.”

Sandor most recently served as vice president for corporate communications and public affairs for Health Care Service Corporation, an independent licensee of Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Association in Chicago. His responsibilities included media relations, crisis management, employee and executive communication, integrated marketing communications, and social media positioning.

Sandor brings extensive experience aligning business practices with social responsibility initiatives to effect positive change in communities. During his tenure, the company was recognized by the Civic 50 and the World’s Most Ethical Companies for its leading community relations strategies and programs.

Emory’s Communications and Public Affairs division works strategically through print, digital, and media platforms to create awareness, understanding, and support of the university and its mission. The division is made up of integrated teams in media relations, government and community affairs, marketing, digital strategy and design, photographic and video production, and editorial and graphic design services.

“It is my privilege to help communicate Emory’s outstanding record of academic excellence, health innovation, and deep engagement in the Atlanta community,” says Sandor. “I look forward to working collaboratively across the university to ensure we build a strong Emory identity and reach out through innovative platforms to our many constituents around the world.”
