LB PR veteran chosen as exec director of local police foundation

Kathy Berry, native Long Beach resident and public relations veteran, was recently selected to serve as the executive director of the Long Beach Police Foundation (LBPF). The position is part-time, which will allow Berry, the owner of KBE/public relations, to continue to work with other clients.
As executive director, Berry is responsible for providing administrative support to the LBPF board members and committees, including working closely with the Long Beach Police Department board liaison, and to move the LBPF to the next step in developing funding, events, community visibility and consistency in day-to-day operations and future growth.
“The LBPF is very important to me, and I am anxious to see it move to a higher level and am excited about being part of that growth,” said Berry.
Assisting Berry with public relations, event coordination and fund development will be Gretchen Houser, owner of Houser PR in Long Beach. Houser is also a member of the LBPF board of directors and has been in the public relations industry for more than 24 years.
