Rachel S. Bauch

Rachel S. Bauch has more than twenty years experience developing and implementing milestone communications campaigns and initiatives for not-for-profits, corporations and foundations. In many cases, this work has helped to guide and define these institutions for a generation.

Ms. Bauch led communications surrounding the highly anticipated opening of The Broad, a new contemporary museum in downtown Los Angeles designed by architects Diller, Scofidio + Renfro; the reopening of The Getty Villa and the unprecedented launch of the Pacific Standard Time initiatives for the J. Paul Getty Trust; strategic counsel and media relations campaigns on behalf of the LA Natural History Family of Museums for their seven-year capital campaign and transformation and its launch of the integrative NHM Urban Nature Research Center; and science and crisis communications for the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum. The roster of her other notable clients included Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Bank of America; Biomuseo in Panama, Ullens Center in Beijing, Menil Drawing Institute, Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University; Hammer Museum, Mike Kelley Foundation, Turnaround Arts, Carnegie Hall, Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project, Los Angeles Ballet, Aquarium of the Pacific and Monterey Bay Aquarium. Ms. Bauch has held communications and university administration roles at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the USC Roski School of Art & Design; the USC International Offices in Asia and the USC Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBEAR).

She received her undergraduate degree in Politics from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. where she also studied English Literature and Anthropology before earning her graduate degree from the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Journalism.
