1 min read

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department has named Danny Straessle its new public information officer.

Straessle replaces Randy Ort, who became the Department’s assistant chief for administration earlier this year, according to Scott Bennett, director of the AHTD.

Straessle holds a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in journalism from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and has been the department’s assistant public information officer since 2013.

Prior, Straessle spent 18 years leading marketing efforts of various consulting engineering firms and worked as managing editor of a group of regional construction industry trade publications.

“Danny’s background in print and electronic journalism, combined with his experience in the engineering and construction industries, has been a real benefit to the AHTD,” Bennett said in a news release. “We look forward to having Danny lead our communication efforts.”
