A widely-recognized expert in the emerging field of digital marketing, an outreach method that has become increasingly relevant and taken on additional importance in recent months, has been added to the staff at the City of Celina.
Donna Lynch has been named Director of Marketing and Communications, bringing a critically essential dimension to the City’s efforts at connecting with residents, business owners, visitors, developers, and other stakeholders.
“Donna brings with her a new level of outreach that we have not had before,” says City Manager Jason Laumer. “Her experience, enthusiasm, and her unique knowledge base will be an important part of our efforts at moving the Celina brand forward.”
Lynch, a former Senior Marketing Manager for a private medical device manufacturing company, has been brought onboard to help refine and implement the marketing and communications planning and execution of the City’s Life Connected mantra.
In keeping with the City’s motto, #LifeConnected., Celina continues to grow the city through this lens, from the many planned trails to the addition of fiber throughout all communities. Lynch will be at the forefront of ensuring the strategic goal of sharing the Celina story is met by creating emotional, social, and community linkages and bridges on the City’s various digital and conventional platforms.
An expert in contract negotiations, project management, and teambuilding, Lynch has held multiple marketing management positions in the areas of financial services, retail, legal, and non-profit. She holds credentials in digital marketing, marketing strategy, salesforce administration, project management, and is a Certified Meeting Planner.
