OUR EXECUTIVES

John Garrett
Founding Publisher & CEO
AUSTIN

John Garrett started Community Impact Newspaper from the game room of his home with his wife and best friend, Jennifer. The belief that everyone—not just the insiders—should know what is happening in their own backyard prompted him to leave news company giants and start his own news organization. John and Jennifer launched the first edition of CI in 2005 with the Round Rock/Pflugerville paper.

Growing up with parents who worked hard as small-business owners gave John a deep appreciation of how Main Street is the community. Helping local businesses thrive isn’t just part of CI‘s mission statement—it’s in the company’s DNA. John is vested in his community, and he encourages his employees to be involved as well. He aims to set an example by serving on local community boards and nonprofit organizations.

John is the first to devote his time and energy to strengthen and transform the company. He has been named Best CEO by the Austin Business Journal and a Distinguished Young Alumnus by Sam Houston State University. He also won the KPMG Executive Leadership Award from the Austin Chamber of Commerce, among other accolades. John and Jennifer live in Round Rock and have three daughters.

Three things you should know about John …

  1. Although John is proud of the printing plant CI opened in 2016, he is actually color blind. But he hired some pretty amazing color technicians.
  2. John may be the biggest SHSU fan in the world. Eat ‘em up Kats!
  3. He is a proud follower of Jesus Christ.

The best advice he’s ever been given …

Never tire from doing what is right.

What inspires him …

People who give generously of their time, knowledge and resources to nonprofits.

Jennifer Garrett
Founding Publisher & Chief Facility Management Officer
AUSTIN

Jennifer Garrett is her husband’s partner in innovation. When John had the idea to create Community Impact Newspaper, she was by his side and encouraged him to launch the company.

Jennifer loves supporting her community and has always loved finding the stories behind local businesses. She coined the phrase “Everyone loves maps, duh,” which the CI editorial and design teams take to heart when they design CI’s many maps and graphics.

A licensed interior designer, Jennifer received a bachelor’s degree in interior design from Sam Houston State University and worked as an interior designer in the Houston and Austin areas prior to moving to Round Rock. She has won several design awards from the American Society of Interior Designers for her work on CI’s employee-friendly workplaces. Additionally, Jennifer and John were named People of the Year in 2013 by Tribeza, an arts & culture magazine in Austin. She also balances her work at CI with raising three daughters with John.

When the company launched …

Jennifer’s titles included staff accountant, chief proofer and head cheerleader.

University life is a big deal …

Next to John, Jennifer may be the biggest Sam Houston State University fan in the world. “Eat ‘em up Kats!”

You should know this about Jennifer …

She is a proud follower of Jesus Christ.

Amy Ellsworth
Metro Publisher
PHOENIX

Amy Ellsworth joined Community Impact Newspaper in 2013 as general manager of its flagship edition serving the communities of Round Rock, Pflugerville and Hutto. She and her family have been enamored with the Phoenix area and all it has to offer, so when the company launched operations in Arizona, Amy enthusiastically signed on to serve as the Phoenix metro publisher. Prior to joining Community Impact Newspaper, Amy was a chief of staff and communications director for elected officials in Congress and the Texas Legislature.

Amy is passionate about giving back to the community, supporting local businesses and informing citizens through community journalism. She has served as board president of multiple chambers of commerce, was named the 2017 Woman of the Rock-Media honoree and was appointed as a director to a local transportation agency.

Amy and her husband, Scott, find their joy in soaking in life with their 8-year-old son, Evan, who loves all things baseball.

Career advice from Amy

  1. Take advantage of internships while in school.
  2. Do something you love.

While participating in her second law firm internship, Amy realized practicing law wasn’t her calling, so her parents encouraged her to find something she loved. At that time she found her passion for educating those around her.

Work hard, play hard

Working at Community Impact Newspaper can feel like play, but it is still an important job that takes a lot of work. When away from work, it’s all play in the Ellsworth house—from traveling (Costa Rica was a memorable trip), attending sporting events (Super Bowl XLV stands out), playing golf (too many courses to count) to hiking (canyoneering outside Zion National Park is worth the trip).

Out of the mouths of babes

From a young age, Amy and Scott’s son has also loved making sure residents know about new businesses coming to town. Even when he was 3, Evan would say, “Mom, let’s pull over and check out what’s going on there so you can put it in the paper.”

Christal Howard
Metro Publisher
DALLAS | FORT WORTH

Christal Howard joined Community Impact Newspaper in 2013 to launch the Frisco edition as its general manager and now serves as the publisher of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.

Among the many reasons Christal loves leading the CI DFW team is the chance to be surrounded daily by incredible talent—sales professionals who thrive on serving their clients; journalists who are smart, creative and full of passion; and designers who make concept doodles come to life as deeply useful infographics. Also topping the list—the chance to serve the community. Christal is on the Frisco Chamber of Commerce board of directors and the Frisco Education Foundation board and can often be found emceeing various community events.

Prior to life as an Impacter, Christal worked in TV news as an anchor, reporter and managing editor. In her TV life, she was recognized with several awards, including a Texas Associated Press Broadcasters award for Best Reporter and two Emmy nominations. She also previously worked as the media manager for a publicly traded energy company. The most important role for Christal, however, is by far being a wife and mother. She and her husband, Michael, have two children, Emma and Bennett, as well as a rescue dog named Marley.

Christal maintains motivation by …

Celebrating every win with her team. She said she cannot imagine many office cultures that are as genuinely supportive and collaborative as CI’s.

Her favorite sport …

Christal loves the football team of her alma mater, Texas Tech University, and football in general. Lately she’s become a soccer fan, as her favorite team is her daughter’s—The Goalden Girls.

Christal’s latest obsession is …

Home renovation projects. Christal said she and her husband are always dreaming up something to tear apart and rebuild or watching someone else do it on HGTV.

Once officially on board, she launched the company’s second paper in her home market of Cedar Park/Leander.

The best piece of advice Claire would give a young professional …

“Work hard and proactively seek out ways to make your company better. In so doing, succeed because you earned it, not because you expect it.”

Her biggest accomplishment at Community Impact Newspaper …

Claire led the vision and development of CI’s homegrown enterprise resource planning system. CIIMS (Community Impact Information Management System) has integrated every functional area in the company and has completely transformed the way business is conducted at CI.

How Claire fosters creative and innovative thinking …

She believes “none of us is as smart as all of us,” so Claire creates forums for people to come together to brainstorm ideas. There is a large focus on process efficiency so that everyone has daily capacity for innovation.

Derek Sullivan
Creative Director
AUSTIN

Derek Sullivan, a native Austinite and career graphic designer, heads up the design department for Community Impact Newspaper. Derek prides himself in being an “average Joe,” and he uses that perspective to lead CI’s creative efforts to make sure graphics make sense to the average reader. In today’s fast-paced world, visual communication is more important than ever. Whether browsing articles or advertisements, Derek believes design plays a very important role in capturing a person’s attention. The focus on high-quality design of infographics, charts and maps helps to ensure that every issue of the newspaper is reader-friendly and useful. With the CI mission in mind, Derek is committed to helping local businesses thrive by ensuring ad design is second to none.

Under Derek’s leadership, the design department has received dozens of national awards for advertising, editorial layout and website design. As a team member since 2007, he has helped lead the company through many innovations and improvements to processes and products. Derek attributes his and much of the company’s success to the hard work of his creative and talented design team.

When he’s not behind his desk focused on design …

Derek can be found bass fishing with his wife, MaLea, or riding his dirtbike.

Derek’s take on education …

He has an associate degree in visual communication from Austin Community College. “It just goes to show that you don’t need a huge student loan payment to get a great job,” he said.

The best advice he’d give to a young designer is ….

“The portfolio is everything. It shows the world that you know what good design is, and you can do it!”

He wants everyone to know …

Ain’t no party like a CI newspaper launch party!”

One of Jason’s favorite mantras is …

“Everyone loves maps!” CI co-owner John Garrett’s mantra lives on through reader feedback of how the maps in CI’s editions set the company apart from its competitors.

Joe Lanane

Joe Lanane’s career is rooted in community journalism, having worked for a variety of Midwest-area publications before landing south of the Mason-Dixon line in 2011 as the Stillwater News-Press news editor. He arrived at Community Impact Newspaper in 2012, gaining experience as editor of the company’s second-oldest publication in Leander/Cedar Park. He eventually became Central Austin editor, covering City Hall and the urban core of the city.

Lanane leveraged that experience to become Austin managing editor in 2016. He managed eight Central Texas editions from Georgetown to San Marcos. Working from company headquarters, Lanane also became heavily involved in enacting corporate-wide editorial improvements. In 2017, Lanane was promoted to executive editor, overseeing editorial operations throughout the company.

Kim Horkavy
Chief Human Resources Officer
AUSTIN

Kim joined Community Impact Newspaper at the end of 2008 after moving back to Texas from London, where she worked for a marketing agency and earned her Master of Business Administration in international business. While in business school the curriculum that resonated with her the most—and the reason she sought a career in human resources—was her studies surrounding organizational behavior. Learning how to create more efficient business organizations, maximize output from employees, and improve job satisfaction is a challenge most businesses face and what motivates Kim every day.

Kim earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin and is a proud Longhorn. She has served on the board of directors for the Austin Human Resources Association and is a Senior Certified Human Resources Professional, an accreditation from the Society for Human Resource Management. She and her husband, Arol, and son, Miles, live in South Austin where they enjoy all things outdoors and try and keep up with the Austin culinary scene.

What makes Kim passionate about her job …

CI’s potential. She supports the mission of Community Impact Newspaper and how the company is radically changing the landscape of news. She believes CI can take the concept and product nationally and even internationally.

The best piece of advice she would give to young professionals …

“Be positive. Take dissatisfaction to a manager or someone who can influence a change. Chronic complaining, justified or not, can be toxic and can make a department or even an entire company a bad place to work.”

Her philosophy on career satisfaction …

“People spend too much time at work to be unhappy.”

Kristina Shackelford
Associate Publisher
HOUSTON

Kristina Shackelford grew up on Lake Conroe and learned to appreciate the value of a hometown and a love for water. After finishing her degree at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana, she naturally found her way back to the Houston area.

With a passion for the local community, small businesses and giving back, Kristina knew Community Impact Newspaper was a natural fit. Before becoming an Impacter, she was an avid reader and always looked forward to checking out the newest businesses coming to town in her edition of CI. What Kristina loves most about her job is being able to meet the members of the great communities that CI serves.

Kristina is an active member and currently serves on the board of directors of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and previously served as an ambassador for the Cy-Fair Houston Chamber of Commerce. When she’s not devoting her time and energy to the community, Kristina enjoys entertaining her family and friends and spending time outdoors with her golden retriever, Miller Thyme.

The best advice Kristina would give a young professional …

“Be open to new ideas, and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. It is amazing what you can accomplish on the other side of fear.”

How she fosters creative and innovative thinking …

By having fun! Work hard and play harder is the motto Kristina lives by, and she encourages her staff to not take themselves too seriously. Office games, dance breaks and team outings are just some of the things she does to keep the work environment an exciting, creative and collaborative one.

What makes Kristina passionate about her job …

Hearing the excitement from others when she’s out in the community. People frequently tell her all the ways they love CI and how it has helped them become more educated about their communities.

Patty McHugh
Metro Publisher
NASHVILLE

Patty joined Community Impact Newspaper as an account executive in June 2012 after working in fundraising and development. In early 2014, she was promoted to general manager and launched the Spring/Klein edition and saw firsthand how CI brought an already close community even closer. She became general manager of The Woodlands in September 2016, and through her leadership helped The Woodlands edition become one of the largest and most profitable papers in the company.

Patty has always embraced change, so when the opportunity presented itself to relocate to Tennessee to start the Nashville metro as publisher, she enthusiastically accepted the challenge. She believes community newspapers are vitally important and more than just providers of the news. Delivering quality content and keeping a community informed each month gives people something to talk about—and provides a common bond. Whether the discussion takes place near the mailbox, in the classroom or in the boardroom, CI provides a source that brings a community together.

She is the proud mom of daughter Hayley, who is a PA living in Seattle, Washington, and son Keaton, who is a full-time student at LSU in Baton Rouge.

Patty is passionate about …

Helping members of her team achieve their goals. She finds great joy in working closely with her team to help them reach their goals and turn their dreams into reality.

During her time away from CI …

She is a self-proclaimed “DIYer” and in her spare time finds much pleasure in searching for unique items needing some TLC, and transforming them into useful and beautiful pieces. She loves interior design and finding that special, whimsical item that will help turn a house into a home.

Her favorite quote to live by …

“Impossible is nothing.”

There’s never a shortage of advice to take into consideration. Here are my favorites from over the years: do what you love, find the silver lining, fake it ‘til you make it, and fail forward.

What she loves the most about her job …

The opportunity to work with so many different types of people, both externally with clients and internally with all CI departments.

Tess’s adventures across the globe include …

Austria, Belize, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Hungary, Japan, Jamaica, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden, United Kingdom, and of course lots of awesome US road trips.

Why Traci is always in a good mood …

Why she loves being out on the water …

Traci grew up salt-water fishing and gets to the coast as much as possible, looking to reel in the “trifecta”: keeper redfish, trout and flounder.

Travis Baker
Metro Publisher
AUSTIN

Travis Baker has been a consumer of news his entire life. Being informed in an unbiased way has always appealed to him. As a publisher, he does not take the job lightly. Each day brings forth the challenge of: How can Community Impact Newspaper present unbiased news that touches on all sides of a story?

After graduating from Texas A&M University with a degree in marketing, Travis’ first job found him in Dallas working at Fox Station Sales. Longing to get back to his roots, Travis moved back to Austin and joined the sales team at KVUE-TV, and eventually he moved to print news and worked for the Austin Business Journal.

In 2010, Travis was hired to be the general manager for CI‘s Southwest Austin edition. In 2016, he was promoted to publisher for the company’s Austin metro editions. Travis grew up in Central Texas and is a father of four.

Travis’ role model is …

“Howard Butt Jr.—imagine being born into one of the most successful grocery chains, yet you feel at the crossroads to uphold the family business but serve more from a philanthropic way as well.” Travis has a great respect for him for balancing what culture says versus what his heart was telling him.

Best advice he’s been given …

“Business is about relationships. Think first how you can help another before how they can help you. It’s a small world; you will be amazed how much your networking/sourcing will reciprocate years down the road.”

What makes him passionate about his job …

“The editorial side of the newspaper is trying to tell stories that can change communities and lives, and the advertising side is entrusted with helping small businesses grow. … That’s a win-win.”
