Verger Capital Hires Director of Marketing & Communications

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Verger Capital, the outsourced-CIO investment advisor exclusively for non-profit organizations, is pleased to announce the addition of Whitney Newell as Director of Marketing and Communications.  As part of Verger’s investor relations team, Whitney’s focus will be building and implementing strategic marketing plans and communications that support the growth objectives of the firm.


Whitney comes to Verger Capital with a breadth of experience, having spent time on both the agency and corporate marketing side. Most recently, Whitney served as a Brand Manager at Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Marketing, from Clemson University and is scheduled to complete a Master’s in Business Administration at Wake Forest University in August 2018.


“Verger has a unique and powerful story to tell. Their history with Wake Forest University, coupled with years of investment experience, positions them to provide critical access and resources to non-profit organizations with a mission to positively impact the lives of the students, patients, and patrons they serve. It is that commitment to their clients and their clients’ work that drew me to this opportunity. It is embedded in the culture here at Verger, and it is contagious,” said Whitney when asked about her decision to join the Verger Capital team.


As Verger strives to deepen and expand endowment and foundation relationships, this marketing role will also directly support the efforts of client development and client service.


“This role is one of increasing importance as we continue to grow and build long-lasting relationships within the non-profit community. Whitney’s varied experience in marketing and communications brings a new perspective to our business and how we communicate our message. This is an exciting time at Verger and we are eager to welcome Whitney to the team,” said CEO and CIO of Verger, Jim Dunn.
