Bolton Named Arthur Page Center Chair

Roger Bolton has been appointed chair of the Arthur W. Page Center for Integrity in Public Communication at Penn State University, effective tomorrow. He’s been on the board of the Arthur W. Page Society since 2006 and has served as a past president of the organization.

Bolton works with consulting firm Gagen MacDonald and with APCO Worldwide. He has served as the SVP of comms at Aetna and assistant secretary of the Treasury for public affairs under President George H.W. Bush. He also worked in the Ronald Reagan administration.

The Page Center is a research unit at Penn State’s College of Communications. The Center was formed in 2004 and collects stories and histories of PR practitioners. It has handed out $370,000 in research grants for ethical projects since its inception.

We spoke with Bolton for a podcast on trust and reputation back in January. Click here to listen to his thoughts.
