Thrive Regional Partnership has welcomed Rhett Bentley to the team as communications manager.
The role is dedicated to establishing a comprehensive communications strategy for the organization, as well as sustaining relationships with regional media to share news and stories of various communities and constituencies across the tri-state region.
“It’s no small challenge to take hold of the wealth of stories and material our community has to offer and distill it into clear, impactful messages that accurately represent the region while positioning it as a place of national, economic interest," Bentley said. "This is a responsibility I embrace.”
A native of Savannah, Ga., Bentley grew to love the regional landscape while a student at Sewanee, the University of the South. She graduated magna cum laude with a major in English and minors in Spanish and art history.
She lives in Chattanooga with her husband, Rob, and two dogs. Bentley has established connections in the city’s vibrant nonprofit sector. She has facilitated communications for organizations such as Southern Lit Alliance and the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga.
Bentley looks forward to working with Thrive Regional Partnership, which after four years of intensive research for the Thrive 2055 regional planning initiative, has become a reputable thought leader in community development.
"Communicating the compelling vision for our region, the infrastructure challenges we are facing, and the progress made by leaders of the cities and towns throughout our area is a key function of Thrive," said Bridgett Massengill, president and CEO. "We are thrilled to have Rhett join our team."
Thrive Regional Partnership implements and sustains a vision of responsible and inspired growth across greater Chattanooga and the Southeast Tennessee area.
