Paige Ilkhanipour is the marketing director at Pittsburgh Glass Center. Although she has overseen the marketing, PR and advertising efforts of the organization since 2004, she admits that she still can’t make a cup that’s not wonky which is ironic because her family operated a glass factory in West Virginia.
Her 25 years in marketing and PR includes employment with two PR and marketing firms in Pittsburgh where she worked with a variety of clients from Microsoft to Development Dimensions International. Additionally she was the publicity manager for an international invention and new product exposition.
She has volunteered with many nonprofit organizations including Gateway to the Arts, Friends of the Riverfront, Pittsburgh New Works Festival and Three Rivers Rowing Association among others. She received her bachelor of arts from Bethany College and master’s degree from West Virginia University.
