Vice President of Preambula Group
Joshua’s 20 years of experience leading or contributing to allied organizations offer a particular value to the Preambula Group (PG). Throughout his career he has been able to build tight-knit teams that are able to launch successful and sustainable campaigns or revitalize failing initiatives. He cites the real lives improved, the methodologies that make that possible, and the great people involved, as his primary motivators for joining Preambula.
Joshua’s experience includes his work as a consultant in both the private and not-for-profit sectors, serving the Archdiocese of Denver for seven years in roles such as Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Marketing & Communications Officer, developing a ministry directed at marginalized youth, and as the former Director of Marketing & Recruitment at the Augustine Institute.
He built a national reputation particularly in communications for strategies that have been adopted by dioceses and some ministries across the U.S. Examples include parish service models, grass roots communications networking, major campaigns, and best-in-class responses to historical public relations issues and the Covid-19 pandemic.
Joshua is particularly proud of his western-PA roots. The values of “hard work and plain speak” helped him have private sector success early in his career. An adult reversion to the faith in his mid-30s inspired his move into professional positions that supported Catholic mission.
Joshua lives in Lakewood, CO with his wife Tina and their son Kilian (1). They are his pride and joy!
