President, Palladian Partners, Inc., an Altarum Company
Named a 2009 Rising Star by Federal Computer Week, Beth Maloney has more than 20 years of experience focused on digital solutions for government and private-sector clients launching communications campaigns and new service offerings. She bridges the space between what technology can do and what an agency is trying to achieve. She speaks in plain language, comprehends an agency’s goals, analyzes the options, and clearly presents what’s possible and will be effective.
Drawing on many years’ experience developing digital solutions in the media and publishing industry, Beth strives to differentiate online and offline outreach efforts, emphasizing that each medium has unique offerings for the audience. With an eye to enhancing digital communications with richer content, more interactive features, and multimedia, she furthers the relationship between the publisher and the reader.
Beth has led the strategic planning and implementation of digital initiatives that include the award-winning American Recovery and Reinvestment Act website for the National Institutes of Health Office of the Director; the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health website; the NIH National Institute on Drug Abuse low-literacy website; and websites for the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, NIH Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the Office of Personnel Management, and the Post-Newsweek Media Inc. community newspapers.
Beth joined Palladian, now an Altarum company, in early 2008—eight years after Palladian was first a client of hers at an Internet startup company. Since taking on the role of President of Palladian in 2011, the company has expanded strategic communications and digital strategy offerings; thus, increasing its competitiveness in the government and non-government sectors.
