The Downtown Little Rock Partnership (DLRP) announced Wednesday the hiring of a new Director of Communications, Ellen Lampe.
A former TV and print journalist in both Little Rock and St. Louis, Lampe brings over five years of experience in the field of journalism and communications to downtown. Most recently, Lampe worked as the Communications Coordinator for St. Louis County government.
The St. Louis, Missouri native is an alumna of the University of Arkansas, with bachelor’s degrees in journalism and Spanish.
Lampe replaces outgoing DLRP Director of Communications Anderson Penix.
“We are thrilled to have Ellen join our team,” DLRP Executive Director Gabe Holmstrom said. “She brings valuable experience and a fresh perspective to Little Rock, and we are excited for her to tell the stories of our downtown.”
“This is an exciting time to be in downtown Little Rock,” Lampe said. “With all the amazing people, the events, and the new public art, this city has so much to offer and I’m proud to make it my home.”
