Former Tribune publisher Chip Visci becomes an early beneficiary of a passed state budget by bagging a job at Cal Poly as associate vice president for strategic communications.
Visci, 55, worked as a reporter and editor and Knight Ridder executive before he joined the local daily in 2004 and retired in September 2008. He remained in the county, telling friends at the time he wanted to get active in civic affairs.
Visci’s areas of responsibility will include oversight of government and community relations, and university communications. He is slated to begin visiting new associates immediately, sources said. A memo circulated to those associates informed them that “[Visci’s] expertise in strategic communications is particularly welcome, as we complete our strategic plan, prepare to update the University master plan, and lay the groundwork for a new, comprehensive campaign.”
