(INDIANAPOLIS – June 23, 2021) – The International Center has promoted Rebecca VanVliet to Marketing and Communications Director. She most recently served as The Center’s Marketing and Communications Manager.

A graduate of Butler University’s Lacy School of Business with a degree in marketing, VanVliet joined The International Center in January 2019 as the Marketing and Communications Intern and immediately became an integral member of the marketing and development team. Her impressive skill set, strong work ethic, and willingness to learn led The Center to invite her to join its staff following her internship in March 2019.

Martin Baier, President and CEO of The International Center, expressed The Center’s enthusiasm for VanVliet’s contribution to the success of The Center’s marketing efforts. “Rebecca is an outstanding example of the potential that exists within our internship program for an intern to gain so rich an experience that they are prepared to move after graduation directly into a position in their chosen field, whether at The Center or elsewhere. We are grateful for her contribution to the success of The Center’s brand and helping us carry out our mission to promote a more global Indiana,” he added.
