Hauptman, who joined the Downtown in 2015 as executive director of operations, will continue to oversee recruitment, while also spearheading initiatives focused on talent development.

"Lisa is extremely passionate about our company and the team. She has and will continue to play a critical role in the company's talent development and recruitment," Bergman said in a statement. "She has also become a crucial component of the management team due to her experience in developing executive talent and her tremendous instincts for people."

Also joining the people team will be Travis Cowan as talent acquisition and retention specialist and Nina Lampcov as human resources coordinator. Both will report to Hauptman.
