Brad Bohlander, the veteran spokesperson for Colorado State University, has been named the chief communications officer and associate vice chancellor for University Communications at North Carolina State University following a national search.
Bohlander, who has been at Colorado State since January 2002 and is a graduate of CSU, will begin his new duties in North Carolina in November.
“While we will certainly miss Brad, this is a great opportunity for him to advance his career,” said Tom Milligan, vice president for External Relations. “Brad is a real pro who has done outstanding things for his alma mater, and we have no doubt he will continue to bring credit to CSU as he does great things for NC State.”
Milligan said a national search will be started immediately to replace Bohlander, who has been in his current role as executive director of Public Relations since 2005.
“Brad’s done a great job, and it is very clear that because of his work here, Colorado State has a solid team and a great reputation in the state and around the nation,” Milligan said. “We’ll certainly miss Brad’s calm demeanor and skill, but believe we can build on the work he’s done here going forward.”
“Colorado State is a tremendous university with outstanding leadership, and I feel both proud and fortunate to have been able to work alongside so many amazing individuals across campus as part of this community over the last decade. This is a special place with special people, and I am grateful for the great friends and unforgettable experiences at Colorado State,” said Bohlander. “My family and I are very excited about the opportunities ahead at another great land grant research university, North Carolina State University, but I am, and always will be, proud to be a CSU Ram.”
