Clemson Downs names new marketing director
CLEMSON — Clemson Downs Retirement Community announced that Ruthie Millar has joined its team in a newly created marketing role.
Millar will work to heighten external engagement by working with members of the Greater Clemson community and across the region to convey the value of the “continuum of care” model offered at Clemson Downs.
Millar will work in tandem with longtime Clemson Downs employee Jackie Cleveland, who is heading up internal marketing programs.
The expansion of the marketing department coincides with rapid growth and development at the Clemson campus.
Millar joins Clemson Downs after serving as membership director for the Clemson Area Chamber of Commerce since 2008. In that role, Millar served as community liaison with chamber members, other community organizations and sponsors.
“Ruthie’s significant impact within the Clemson community is inspiring for us at Clemson Downs,” said John LeHeup, executive director for Clemson Downs. “Her energy and passion and vast knowledge of the community is unmatched, and she is a strong and exciting addition to our marketing team. We look forward to her strong leadership and forward thinking approaches in ensuring our marketing initiatives convey the true value of our retirement community to Pickens County residents and beyond.”
Along with extensive experience at the Clemson Chamber, Millar also is engaged with area non-profits and events, co-chairing ClemsonFest and serving on the board at Pendleton United Methodist Church.
“Clemson Downs has a powerful story because this is a retirement community that does nothing short of keeping families and couples in close proximity to each other when they require varying degrees of care,” said Millar. “I look forward to expanding my knowledge of the Town of Clemson and beyond and continuing to engage those who are my neighbors and who have grown to become great friends.”
