As a member of Vineyard Offshore’s External Affairs team and working under Director of Communications Andrew Doba, Kathryn will take on broad corporate and project communication duties, including media relations. She was previously Director of Communications for the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
“Vineyard Offshore is a growing company, focused on the buildout of projects in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and West Coast, and our communication needs are growing as well,” said Christian Scorzoni, Vice President and Head of External Affairs for Vineyard Offshore. “With her background, experience, and enthusiasm for offshore wind, Kathryn is the perfect person to help us manage national and regional communication responsibilities.”
“I am excited to welcome Kathryn to the Vineyard Offshore team,” said Andrew Doba, Director of Communications. “From the Vineyard Wind project, now under construction, to three lease areas on the East and West coasts Vineyard Offshore is preparing to develop, we have great stories to tell. Kathryn is the ideal person to help us tell them.”

“Joining Vineyard Offshore is the opportunity I’ve been waiting for,” said Niforos. “Offshore wind is the most exciting arena of clean energy development today and the biggest resource we have to solve the climate crisis. I look forward to helping Vineyard Offshore raise its profile and establish a trusted presence everywhere it is working.”
