National Wildlife Federation Promotes Miles Grant to Director of Communications

"His broad expertise, media relationships, strategic approach, and his passion for NWF’s mission made him the perfect choice."

The National Wildlife Federation, one of America’s oldest and largest wildlife conservation and education organizations, has promoted Miles Grant to director of communications.

In this role, Grant will oversee national media relations efforts for the organization’s wide array of policy, advocacy, programmatic and consumer-facing activities and he will serve as the media’s key point of contact for NWF’s President and CEO Collin O’Mara.

“Miles has a proven ability to elevate the voices of experts within the National Wildlife Federation and our state affiliates by connecting them with reporters in Washington and across the country and helping them tell their stories directly to our members through online media,” said Maureen Smith, vice president of marketing and communications at the National Wildlife Federation. “His broad expertise, media relationships, strategic approach, and his passion for NWF’s mission made him the perfect choice for leading our national communications efforts at this critical time for wildlife conservation.”

Grant joined the National Wildlife Federation in 2007 working with a large group of the organization’s members, affiliates and partners to tell their stories of how climate change was hitting home where they hunt and fish. More recently, he’s overseen communications across a range of conservation programs at NWF’s National Advocacy Center in Washington, DC, including the February 2015 launch of NWF’s partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to save America’s monarch butterflies.

Prior to joining the National Wildlife Federation, Grant was a television news producer with John McLaughlin, WJLA-TV and News Channel 8 in Washington, DC, WJAR-TV in Providence, RI and WPTZ-TV in Plattsburgh, NY/Burlington, VT. He’s a longtime volunteer conservation advocate and blogger who graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in broadcast journalism. Grant lives in Fairhaven, MA with his wife, Bethanie, and their 13-month-old daughter, Olivia.
