About me

Marc Moorghen

Hi I’m Marc Moorghen (it looks exotic, but it’s simply pronounced "Morgan"). I’m the Founder and Principal Consultant at On Message Communications. I advise people and organizations who are navigating change and trying to shape the world. 

From 2010 to 2017, I headed the communications and marketing efforts of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, a $2.5 billion private family foundation established by the founder of Hilton Hotels. 

During my tenure, the Foundation grew its team to 80 people and its annual giving to $115 million per year through 12 local, national and international programs

Prior to establishing the communications team, I managed operations of the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize for six years, from 2005 to 2010. 

Previously, I worked in marketing and communications, education, and events management in Europe, Asia, and the United States. 

I completed my undergraduate studies at Southampton University (UK) and postgraduate education at the University of Leuven (Belgium) in European Affairs. More recently, I was awarded a Master of Communication Management degree at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. 

On a personal level, I’m passionate about the field of strategic communications, particularly the study of human interactions through languages, images, music and culture. I recently took a sabbatical with my wife, Jona, and traveled around the world for nine months.
