Ian Jones

Director of Engagement, Interlochen Center for the Arts

Ian Jones is thrilled to return to his roots in the arts as the Director of Engagement at Interlochen Center for the Arts.

Ian comes to Interlochen from Munson Healthcare, where he served as System Director of Marketing and led marketing strategy and brand management for the northern Michigan health system. There he was recognized for his work on the development and execution of a set of complex communication plans supporting the integration of five hospitals into the health system over four years. He led the organization's digital strategy, including the launch of a new, fully-integrated website and development of an Advocacy Action Network, designed to keep the community actively engaged in supporting strong and sustainable local health care. During his tenure, he also managed internal communications for the organization’s thousands of employees and public relations, serving as the organization’s Public Information Officer.

Prior to Munson, Ian served as Director of Communications and Corporate Relations, Associate Director of Operations, and in various other roles for Davenport University’s northern Michigan operations. His restructuring of operations in admissions, advising, and marketing sparked a 55 percent increase in lead activity across five campuses and a 41 percent increase in new student start rates. In addition to his administrative roles, he spent four years in the classroom as an adjunct faculty member in computer networking.

Ian holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dramatic Art from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill along with certification from the American Management Association.
