OPUBCO Communications Group has hired Ken Brooks to be the company's new vice president of marketing.
“As our business continues to transform, we remain focused on producing valuable products that serve our readers and advertisers,” said Chris Reen, president of OPUBCO Communications Group and publisher of The Oklahoman. “Ken brings a fresh, new perspective to our overall marketing efforts that will greatly benefit both.”
Brooks, 46, has more than 17 years of diverse, senior-level marketing experience, most recently serving as senior director of product management and marketing at Prime Therapeutics, a pharmacy benefit management company based in Eagan, Minn.
Before joining Prime, Brooks served as vice president and general manager of the Southern California office of Wayfinder, a full-service marketing and advertising agency based in San Francisco.
Brooks also has worked for United Health, Knowledge Universe, Edison International, AAA and Newell Rubbermaid.
Brooks is relocating here from California along with his wife, Janene, and 6-year-old son, Casey.
“I am happy to be with a company so focused on community involvement and delivering quality products,” Brooks said. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues on finding creative ways to grow OCG's business while becoming active in my new community of greater Oklahoma City.”
Brooks earned a bachelor's degree in political science and a master's degree in public administration from California State University in Long Beach, Calif.
