Ben Godley

Greenough Communications has brought on Ben Godley, the former chief operating officer of Boston public television station and content producer WGBH, as president.

Godley was most recently the CEO and co-founder of CDP (Contributor Development Partnership), a WGBH-owned public benefit corporation that provides marketing, technology, data analytics and fundraising services to 230 public media stations as well as managing $110M in annual donations.

He joined WGBH, the country’s largest public television content producer, in 2008 as executive vice president, was named COO in 2010 and was additionally named president of business services in 2017. Prior to joining WGBH, Godley served as senior advisor and deputy national finance director with Mitt Romney's 2008 presidential campaign.

In his newly created role, Godley will leverage his executive management and marketing experience to help support Greenough’s portfolio of national clients in the healthcare, life sciences, technology, professional services, consumer and non-profit sectors.

“I’ve known Ben well as a client and former colleague and I am thrilled to bring his experience and skills in business strategy, brand-building, service innovation and problem-solving to our roster of leading clients,” said Greenough founder and CEO Phil Greenough.
