Howard University has named Frank Tramble VP of communications and chief communications officer, effective Sept. 2.

Tramble comes to Howard from Georgetown University, where he was senior director, strategic communications and operations.

He previously served as Georgetown’s associate director for annual giving marketing and operations.

In his new position, Tramble will be responsible for refining and executing Howard's communications strategy and overseeing marketing, brand, media relations, crisis communications and reputation management.

“His experience in team building and managing high-visibility campaigns in the higher education arena will be a tremendous asset to our campus,” said Howard University president Wayne A.I. Frederick.

Tramble takes over from Crystal Brown, who joined Hager Sharp in June to lead its education, labor and economy practice.
