Ryan Lampton Named President of HighRock Studios
Posted July 28, 2016
HighRock Holdings, LLC is pleased to announce Ryan Lampton has been named President of HighRock Studios, a full service marketing firm headquartered in Hagerstown, Maryland. A graduate of the University of Maryland Baltimore County, Lampton spent eight years in commercial banking before joining HighRock Studios as Partner and Chief Operating Officer in August 2012.
"I’ve known Ryan since we played soccer together at Smithsburg High School,” said Rich Daughtridge, Founder of HighRock Studios and President & CEO of HighRock Holdings. “He’s been a great asset to the company for the last four years and his leadership skills have helped move HighRock forward.”
In his new position, Lampton will continue to oversee day to day operations of HighRock Studios. “My focus is to continue building on the legacy of HighRock. The team we’ve assembled and the direction we’re headed as a company makes coming to work every day a blast. Our short term plans are to increase our presence in both the tri-state area and the Baltimore market and to continue growing our team, which has already increased by nearly 40 percent in the last 12 months. As a company, we’re always looking for creative ways to improve our offerings and I’m glad to be part of this innovation.”
HighRock Studios celebrated their 10-year anniversary in 2015. Since the company’s creation, the partners have also founded HighRock Holdings, LLC, a privately held holding company established in January 2014. “Born out of a marketing agency, HighRock Holdings has a unique perspective for growing existing brands and launching new ones,” said Daughtridge. “I will continue to oversee the performance of all companies under our umbrella, and will remain actively involved in the strategic direction of HighRock Studios.”
