Lowell is responsible for a full range of external and internal communications at IAVE, working collaboratively with staff and board members across program areas, and spanning earned, owned and paid media.
As communications manager for a community development nonprofit in Philadelphia from 2016 to 2023, he oversaw a major restructuring of its web presence that generated a tenfold improvement in search rankings. He produced an 8-part series of short videos, and with the executive director, placed more than half a dozen editorials in local and regional press. These efforts played a key role in winning millions of foundation and government dollars for Kensington, a neighborhood gutted by disinvestment and the opioid epidemic.
Previously Lowell served in donor relations for an international NGO, raising funds for international schools and preschools. Coordinating with field offices in 40 countries, he produced personalized updates for supporters by mail, email, and social media, and traveled across the U.S. to speak to varied audiences of potential donors.
Lowell holds a Bachelor’s in art and theater from Goshen College, Indiana. He lives with his partner and kids in Virginia, U.S.A.
