St. Olaf names chief marketing officer

St. Olaf College - Fri, 06/24/2016 - 11:46am

St. Olaf College Vice President for Enrollment and College Relations Michael Kyle ’85 has announced the appointment of Katie Warren ’95 as its first chief marketing officer.

Warren, who is currently president and director of strategy at the Minneapolis-based marketing services agency Gabriel deGroodBendt (GdB), will begin at St. Olaf July 5.

Warren has spent the past 16 years leading brand strategy, innovation, and marketing communications plans in both the advertising and retail industries.

Prior to joining GdB, she was vice president of brand marketing at SuperValu, where she led banner brand marketing and advertising, private brands marketing, health and wellness marketing, and strategic planning. She also worked at Campbell-Mithun and Br&nd Innovators, assisting clients like Coca-Cola, General Mills, and Land O’Lakes.

“Katie is strategic, accomplished, and down-to-earth,” Kyle says. “The experience she brings will drive stronger integration across campus, enabling the group she leads to provide effective, authentic, and compelling communications.”

This new role at the college is intended to strategically elevate the role of marketing in the college’s communications plan to increase awareness and visibility of the college and support the college’s strategic plan.

“St. Olaf has long had a place in my heart and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to leverage my skills and experience to take the St. Olaf brand to the next level,” Warren says.

Warren holds a bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf, where she majored in English, and a master of marketing communications certificate from the University of St. Thomas.

Sale on Strawberry Plants


Start your own strawberry patch!  We have well developed strawberry plants on sale!!  A tray of 10 plants for just $6.99.  (While supplies last)

Strawberries need full sun, and you should plant them about 12″ apart.  They will root into your garden now and send out runners which will fill out your strawberry patch.  Late fall, you should cover your strawberry patch with straw for the winter.  This will help insulate the patch for the winter.  Then in the spring, you rake back the straw and leave it between the rows to help in keeping the weeds down!

What’s Doing the Blooming? Plains Prickly Pear

Opuntia macrorhiza (Plains Prickly Pear)

This time each year a steady stream of visitors come to ask us, “What is that plant in the display garden with the beautiful yellow flowers?” Before we can answer they follow with, “It looks like a cactus!” Well, they are exactly right! Not only is it a cactus but it is one of 3 varieties of cactus that are native to Minnesota. Yes, you read that correctly, Minnesota has native cacti. If you haven’t been in during their bloom before, it is definitely worth the stop. They are impressive!

Opuntia macrorhiza (Plains Prickly Pear)

We carry one of two varieties of native prickly pear commonly referred to as Plains Prickly Pear. This unique, perennial would be found in sunny, dry prairie environments and among exposed rock outcroppings. However, for our purposes, they are a fun and easy addition to any sunny, well drained perennial bed or border. Mature colonies produce a 12” high, dense groundcover or mat, which is covered with bright yellow flowers each June.
