ADEQ’s Ian Bingham appointed as communications director
“Widely admired and respected inside and outside of the agency, Mr. Bingham exhibits a true passion for and deep understanding of the value effective communication brings to furthering the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality mission of protecting and enhancing public health and the environment,” ADEQ Director Misael Cabrera said.
Bingham has worked with the agency for 25 years and has a background in designing and implementing processes to increase efficiency and performance. His new role will see him working closely with executive leadership and driving the agency’s marketing and branding activities, as well as managing internal and external communications and outreach. He has previously worked in numerous ADEQ departments, including recent stints as the Voluntary Environmental Stewardship Program Coordinator and an Arizona Power Plant and Transmission Line Siting Committee Representative.
“Mr. Bingham leads by example — his commitment to the environment and our community go far beyond his work at the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality in his service as a member of the Board of Directors for the Stewardship Action Council, Arizona Environmental Strategic Alliance Advisor, and mentoring youth by coaching basketball since 1989," Cabrera said.
