Lynch's Landing Hires New Executive Director


Ashley Kershner has been named the new executive director of Lynch’s Landing.

For the past three years, Kershner has led the marketing, branding and development efforts for Lynchburg Parks and Recreation.

"Ashley and our Board are dedicated to further establishing our downtown as a favorite destination for residents and visitors alike."
