Anna Heaton, currently Governor Rick Snyder’s Press Secretary, will join Business Leaders for Michigan in early October, the organization announced today.

Heaton will serve as Vice President of Marketing and Communications, helping to increase awareness and build support for BLM’s Plan for a Stronger Michigan and key priorities such as education reform, infrastructure and workforce development and economic development.

“Anna is passionate about Michigan and has a wealth of experience in strategically communicating complex policy issues,” Rothwell said. “Having served in Lansing for the last eight years, Anna’s knowledge and perspective on our areas of focus will be a great asset to our organization.”

Heaton joined the Snyder Administration in early 2015. She previously worked in communications for the House Republican Caucus under Speaker Jase Bolger, and on Capitol Hill as an assistant to then-Congresswoman Candice Miller. Heaton is a graduate of Western Michigan University.
