BOSTON - Wednesday, December 22, 2021 - Mayor Michelle Wu announced today that she is appointing Jessicah Pierre as Chief Communications Officer, starting January 3. Pierre will serve as lead communications director and advisor for the Wu administration, guiding a communications team that will aim to connect with Boston residents where they are, build trust and transparency, and engage with all of Boston’s neighborhoods.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Jessicah back to City Hall, bringing her passion for building community and love for Boston to strengthen our connection to residents across every neighborhood,” said Mayor Wu. “Jessicah shares our vision of a Boston for everyone, and I’m so excited to see her leadership in helping each of our City departments meet residents where they are with creative, transparent, and proactive communications.”

Jessicah Pierre is a publicist, business strategist, and writer who has used her public relations and entrepreneurial skills to build community and elevate the work of organizations like the Black Economic Council of MA and the Institute for Policy Studies. As a writer, she formerly wrote a weekly column in the Dorchester Reporter, highlighting important events, initiatives, and issues in Boston’s Black communities. Previously, Pierre served on Mayor Wu’s campaign as the press secretary and as communications staff in Wu’s City Council office.

"I am humbled by the opportunity to join Mayor Wu's administration and serve the city that I love,” said Jessicah Pierre. “As a Boston resident, I understand the barriers that many of our neighbors face in getting access to critical information in a culturally competent way. I am looking forward to leading an inclusive communications department that is reflective of our city’s diversity to carry out a vision that brings our communities together, and provides the much needed change that Boston residents deserve.”

Born and raised in Boston, Pierre has a deep understanding of the role that communications and the media has in mobilizing communities and building connections through storytelling. As a curator of safe spaces and an advocate for equity, she is also the founder of Queens Company, a leading organization in Boston dedicated to empowering women of color professionals and entrepreneurs. 

Jessicah Pierre is currently a Dorchester resident who enjoys practicing yoga and mentoring young people. 

This announcement builds on Mayor Wu’s efforts to quickly build a passionate, knowledgeable Cabinet that reflects the diversity of Boston. Last week the Mayor appointed Brianna Millor as Chief of Community Engagement. Other recent appointments include Adam Cederbaum as Corporation Counsel, Jascha Franklin-Hodge as Chief of Streets, and Segun Idowu as Chief of Economic Opportunity & Inclusion.
