Keres announced today the promotion of Christina Tewa to Senior Vice President, and Allie Moore to Vice President of Marketing.
Tewa, an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation, will lead management and operational functions for Keres and its partnering companies.
Tewa joined Keres in 2011 and has served the company in various roles, including accounts manager for NativeVet Materiel – an emerging subsidiary company of Keres founded on delivering quality products and supplies to Indian Country. Tewa holds a Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Arts in Native American Studies, and Master of Business Administration from the University of New Mexico.
“I am humbled by this opportunity to serve Keres in a senior role,” said Tewa. “The company has a deeply talented and committed team of professionals – and my goal is to provide leadership that empowers teamwork and raises the company to greater heights.”
Moore, who has supported the company’s marketing and business development initiatives since 2009, will lead Keres and its partnering companies in strategies to expand their market reach. Moore is a graduate of the University of New Mexico’s Communication and Journalism program, and holds a Master of Arts in Integrated Marketing Communication from Emerson College in Boston, Mass. She was named a 40 Under Forty Honoree by New Mexico Business Weekly in 2012.
“I step into this new role with enthusiasm, ambition and a grateful spirit,” said Moore. “The title is recognition for my hard work, and also that of my mentors – Tim Chavez and Jeff Brown – who taught me to think creatively, honor best practices, and show up to work with a win-the-day attitude, everyday.”
Keres has ranked as a top American Indian-owned business in New Mexico by Albuquerque Business First for seven consecutive years. The company’s largest customers include the Department of Defense, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and U.S. General Services Administration.
