Dewanna Lofton has accepted Memphis Mayor AC Wharton Jr.’s appointment to public information officer for the City of Memphis.
Lofton resigned her position as director of communications and alumni engagement at Leadership Memphis, effective March 15.
“Dewanna was only with us for a short time – she made a big impact on Leadership Memphis – and we thank her for her efforts on our behalf,” David Williams, president and CEO of Leadership Memphis, said in a Tuesday, March 5 post. “It’s easy to see why Mayor Wharton would want someone with Dewanna’s skills and work ethic on his team. And it goes without saying this is a tremendous opportunity for Dewanna. We wish her well.”
Leadership Memphis now has four communications positions available for new hires.
