El Dorado Festivals & Events (EFEI) and Murphy Arts District (MAD) in Arkansas have announced that Lisaann Dupont will be joining the organization as their new chief marketing officer. For the last decade, Dupont led communications, digital marketing, email and influencer strategies for Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, the Mother Church of Country Music.
Dupont will lead all marketing and public relations strategies for the non-profit organization. Murphy Arts District features the 7,000-capacity outdoor MAD amphitheater, the 2,500- capacity First Financial Music Hall and a 200-seat restaurant/cabaret The Griffin.
“Everyone feels that we are fortunate to have attracted such an experienced entertainment professional to lead our marketing efforts as we head into our third year. Her background in working with artists across all genres is a great fit for EFEI and MAD,” said EFEI and MAD chairman and CEO Terry Stewart in a release. “Moreover, Lisaann’s recent work with the national launch and promotion of the new Blake Shelton-inspired restaurant group, Ole Red, is a welcome bonus as we continue to redefine and upgrade the offerings and service at The Griffin Restaurant and Cabaret.“
