Austin— The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) announced today the promotion of Tiffany Dunne-Oldfield to deputy executive director to help lead the organization in serving its members and support their work in promoting educational excellence for Texas public school children.
Dunne-Oldfield has been with TASB since January 2021, when she joined the organization as its associate executive director for Communications, Marketing, and Events. She previously worked as the chief innovation and communications officer for Spring Independent School District (ISD), located north of Houston, where she oversaw several key departments including communications, family and community engagement, research and accountability, counseling, and school improvement.
Prior to serving Spring ISD, she served as the chief communications officer for Houston ISD. Before moving into the education sector, she was the executive vice-president of Communications and Corporate Responsibility for BBVA Compass.
“Tiffany has demonstrated outstanding leadership in her time at TASB, and we’re thrilled she has accepted this promotion, which gives us the opportunity to leverage her talent and expertise across the organization,” said TASB Executive Director Dan Troxell. “Tiffany has firsthand experience with the challenges facing school districts, as well as a proven track record of strategic communications and management. I’m confident Tiffany will help TASB continue to grow in its support of members and public education in Texas.”
Dunne-Oldfield will oversee several large departments and initiatives at TASB, including Communications, Marketing, and Events; Human Resources; Planning and Research; Business Intelligence; and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
“Tiffany’s background in education and corporate communications is exactly the right fit for this key position in TASB,” said TASB President Ted Beard, a Longview ISD trustee. “Our member districts will benefit from Tiffany’s expertise in building stronger school communities that benefit all students. I’m looking forward to working with her in this new role.”
Dunne-Oldfield earned a bachelor’s degree in history from The University of Texas at San Antonio and her master’s in educational human resource development from Texas A&M University.
