LITTLE ROCK – Ben Thielemier has been hired as Communications and Marketing Manager for the City of Little Rock, City Manager Bruce T. Moore announced Wednesday.

He was an instrumental member of the successful Little Rock’s Future sales tax campaign and Keep Building Little Rock’s Future millage reauthorization campaign.

“I am thrilled to join the incredible team at Little Rock City Hall,” said Thielemier. “I look forward to helping tell our City’s great story and engaging with Little Rock citizens through the many avenues on which people receive news and information today.”
