The city of Mercer Island has hired Mason Luvera as its new full-time communications manager. This action will allow the previous manager, Ross Freeman, who held a joint communications and sustainability position, to focus solely on city and community sustainability.

Luvera brings diverse expertise in communications and community engagement and was previously the communications manager for the Bellevue Downtown Association, where he built the city center’s brand and served as a key liaison between the media, businesses and the city of Bellevue. He also led communications for another downtown management organization, worked for communications agencies on both the east and west coasts, and served as a communications director in higher education.
