    Teri Lucie Thompson, Senior Vice President for University Relations and Chief Marketing Officer at the University of Arizona, takes you inside the recent refresh of the UA brand—its strategy, structure and execution.

    About Our Speaker:
    Teri Lucie Thompson serves as the Senior Vice President for University Relations and Chief Marketing Officer at the University of Arizona with responsibility for the institution’s brand and outreach through several divisions: communications; legislative and community relations; alumni relations, marketing; Arizona Public Media; and presidential events.

    Thompson joined the University of Arizona in May 2013. Most recently, she served as Vice President Marketing and Media and Chief Marketing Officer at Purdue University (2008-2013), where she led transformational change in positioning the university. She was named the American Marketing Association’s 2012 Higher Education Marketer of the Year.

    Thompson spent 14 years in the financial services sector. She served as Vice President of Marketing at Safeco Insurance and held a number of positions at State Farm Insurance, the last of which was directing the company’s customer segment marketing division, where she spearheaded the company’s efforts in marketing to women, multicultural segments and young adults.  She also spent eight years as a faculty associate at her alma mater, Illinois State University, and as chair of the English department for the university’s laboratory school.

    Thompson earned her bachelor’s degree in English and master’s degree in education from Illinois State University and completed her certification in New Product Development at the University of Michigan. She is co-author of “Tuning into Mom: Understanding America’s Most Powerful Consumer.”
