The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati has hired Ellen Daniel as their new public relations manager. Daniel will manage the day-to-day public relations activities within the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC).
Daniel will direct and implement marketing and communications strategy for the JCRC and the Federation’s Israel Center. She will also work closely with other members of the Federation’s marketing team to craft media materials, work with local, national and trade media, and generate meaningful coverage illustrating how the Federation is building an inclusive community that helps people in need, engages community members, supports Israel, and seeks to ensure a vibrant Jewish future.
“We are delighted to welcome a talented new member to the Federation team,” said Pam Geller, marketing & communications, managing director. “The combination of Ellen’s faith-based nonprofit management experience, journalistic background, and collaborative leadership is the right mix to strengthen and expand the reach of Federation’s impact.”
Daniel received a master’s of journalism from the Ohio University E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. Upon completion of her program, she was awarded a prestigious international internship scholarship to work with SABC, South Africa’s largest television news station. Daniel produced news at WLWT in Cincinnati. Most recently, she served as director of communications and marketing at Mother of Mercy High School. Daniel was a member of Team Cincinnati, led by celebrity Nick Lachey, on NBC’s “Clash of the Choirs.” The choir won first place in the national competition, was awarded $250,000 for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and was named 2007 Cincinnati Ambassadors of the Year.
“I’m excited to come on board at the Federation,” said Daniel. “The organizations within the Federation are doing incredible work in the Jewish community and in the city, and I am eager to give voice to their successes.”
