MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota Twins announced today that longtime Twin Cities communications professional Kevin Smith has been named the club's executive director of public affairs.

Smith, who also will serve as the executive director for the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, will join the Twins August 16.

Smith will oversee the Twins public affairs staff including corporate communications, internet operations and community affairs. In addition, he will provide day-to-day leadership for the Twins Community Fund as it continues to enrich the lives of Upper Midwest youth through baseball and softball.

Smith joins the Twins after spending the last five-and-a-half years serving as director of communications and media relations for the state of Minnesota's Department of Public Safety. Smith served as the department's chief spokesperson and managed many high-profile media events including 9/11.

Prior to his role at the Department of Public Safety, Smith served as director of programming and executive producer of Midwest Sports Channel (MSC).

Before his five year tenure at MSC, Smith worked in a variety of leadership roles during his decade-long career at WCCO Television News.

Smith grew up in Minnetonka, Minn., and graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in communications and theatre arts and a minor in journalism.
