Longtime Salisbury business and community leader Kim Gillis is joining the Greater Salisbury Committee as its first-ever Communications and Outreach Director.
Gillis has spent the last 21 years working for Becker Morgan Group, rising to the position of Senior Associate/Business Development and Marketing Manager.
Gills brings an enormous amount of community knowledge, presence and experience to this new position.
Her primary duties will include membership engagement, program management and social media outreach.
“I am extremely excited and incredibly grateful to join the Greater Salisbury Committee, an organization which has undoubtedly helped shape our community and continues to serve as an advocate for positive change,” Gillis said.
“I was blessed with 21 amazing years working at Becker Morgan Group, learning from and working with some of the very best people. Now, as I set my sights on new adventures and opportunities, I am beyond thrilled to be joining the Greater Salisbury Committee,” she said.
“I look forward to working with the GSC members and the community at large in a collaborative spirit as we continue to identify solutions and opportunities for the Greater Salisbury area,” Gillis said.

“The addition of Kim Gillis is a huge milestone in the already rich history of the Greater Salisbury Committee,” said Jim Hartstein, Chair of GSC. “Kim has a proven track record of success both professionally and with other community organizations.”
A Shore Leadership Class of 2013 graduate, she serves on the Education Awards Committee at the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore and was previously a member of the original GSC Transformational Community Leadership Series.
“As our first-ever Communications and Outreach Director, GSC could not have landed a better person, said GSC President and CEO Mike Dunn. “Kim will be concentrating on three areas in her new role: membership engagement; social media coordination; and helping move our GSC programs and initiatives forward.
“This is a new direction for our organization, and Kim will be a key asset in our continuing efforts to serve as a community catalyst,” Dunn said.
Gillis is also the former Chair of the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce and Vice Chair of the College, Career and Life Readiness subcommittee of the city of Salisbury’s Youth Development Advisory Council.
