Loretta Ucelli was Executive Vice President for Communications and External Relations from April 2004 to August 2005. Ucelli herself came to the position following the tumultuous 19-month tenure of June Massell.
Ucelli resigned to take on a position at Pfizer, but it's speculated that a year of disastrous PR fiascos, including the David Project conflagration, and some Manhattanville related blunders, may have played a role in her departure.
Following her departure, Maxine Griffith who had been appointed to Executive Vice President for Government and Community Affairs in July 2005 was assigned to run point on all Manhattanville related items. David Stone took over the Communications office in March of 2006.
