The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHCPO) has welcomed its new Vice President of Marketing, Communications, and Membership – Caleb Tiller. Tiller comes into the role with more than 20 years of communications, marketing, and membership experience. He spent nine years supporting trade and professional associations and 11 years serving mission-driven nonprofits working to advance global health, climate action, and other pressing international issues.
Prior to joining NHPCO, Tiller led the global communications and marketing function for EngenderHealth, an international organization working to advance gender equality and to improve sexual, reproductive, and maternal health outcomes. Previously, he served for eight years in leadership roles with the Communications & Public Affairs team of the United Nations Foundation, working on a variety of campaigns that built communities and expanded support for issues including malaria, polio, vaccines access, clean cooking, climate action, gender equality, and more. Before joining the UN Foundation, Tiller worked for a decade in leading travel industry organizations, including the Global Business Travel Association, the Airlines Reporting Corporation, and the American Society of Travel Agents, taking on roles of ever-increasing responsibility in the areas of member communications, marketing, and external affairs. In each of these roles, Tiller has provided communications support to steer organizations through major strategic transitions or periods of significant growth.
Tiller welcomed his new role by saying, “Joining NHPCO is an opportunity for me to work with an incredible staff and leadership team to support a community of organizations across the country who every single day make a difference in people’s lives at the most critical times. Hospice and palliative care providers deserve the best possible support organization to keep them updated on regulatory and industry changes, to advocate for their priorities, and to help them learn and grow. NHPCO is that organization. I’m excited to join the team, and I look forward to working alongside hospice and palliative professionals to ensure the community has everything it needs to continue focusing on helping patients, their families, and their communities.”
Tiller is a graduate of the College of Wooster in Wooster, OH. Before starting his communications and marketing career, he worked for four years as a college tutor and high school teacher focused on literature and writing. His first exposure to the hospice movement was as a young child, helping prepare mailings, tending a memorial garden, and doing other important volunteer tasks for the hospice where his mother provided bereavement care. He lives in Washington, DC, with his wife, son and daughter (both teenagers), his father-in-law, and the family dog. His favorite activities include walking, jogging, and biking in Rock Creek Park and going to concerts.
