Capitol Concepts, LLC, is pleased to announce that Leigh Anderson has been named executive director of ASAE.

“I’ve had the distinct privilege of working with Leigh for many years, and we are fortunate to have someone of her caliber and experience join us at ASAE,” said ASAE President Lorrie Trogden, CAE, president and CEO of the Arkansas Bankers Association. “She brings a unique perspective that will help us successfully keep moving the association forward as a valuable member resource.”

“I'm incredibly excited to join ASAE as Executive Director,” Anderson said. “When my family moved to Little Rock eight years ago, I didn't know many people, so I took the good advice to quickly join and participate in ASAE.
