Ohio State’s Office of University Relations will soon be making yet another change.
Tom Katzenmeyer, senior vice president of University Communications, was appointed president of the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
Current President Milt Baughman will retire later this year, according to a Jan. 10 press release from the GCAC.
The GCAC supports art and aims to advance culture in the Columbus area, according to its website. It also funds artists and art organizations and hosts programs and events.
OSU spokeswoman Gayle Saunders said Katzenmeyer hasn’t given an exact date for his departure from the university, but it will be sometime in the spring.
This will give Katzenmeyer time to work with Baughman during the transition period, according to the press release.
Katzenmeyer and Baughman were not immediately available for comment Wednesday.
The announcement came about two months after former university spokesman Jim Lynch left OSU to be special assistant to the director for budget communications at the Ohio Office of Budget and Management.
