SANTA FE – New Mexico Environment Department Secretary Ryan Flynn announced today the appointment of Allison Scott Majure of Los Alamos to the post of Communications Director.
“Ms. Majure’s background in municipal utilities, software marketing, journalism, and nonprofit communications brings both depth and agility to the Department’s communications,” Flynn said. “Her track record demonstrates her strong commitment to improving environmental awareness through the practice of open and direct communication. Her ability to clearly articulate the Environment Department’s goals, standards and expectations will foster informed decision-making and actions on environmental issues by New Mexicans and other stakeholders.”
Majure served previously in public relations with the Los Alamos Department of Public Utilities, as an award-winning journalist in New Mexico, and as a product marketing manager in Silicon Valley, Calif. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley in the History of Science.
“Protecting and restoring the environment for a healthy and prosperous New Mexico is central to NMED’s activities,” Majure said. “This unity of purpose is evident across our 16 bureaus and 26 offices throughout the state. It drives a sound and balanced approach to policy, environmental protection, enforcement, outreach, and education. I am honored to join the hardworking team at the New Mexico Environment Department.”
Majure’s final day of work at the Los Alamos County Department of Public Utilities was March 11 and she began her new post Monday at NMED’s headquarters in Santa Fe.
