Member: Pam Hess

Business: Lamar Advertising Company

Tell us about your business/organization.

Founded in 1902, Lamar Advertising Company is one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in the world, with more than 330,000 displays across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Lamar offers advertisers a variety of billboard, interstate, transit and logo advertising formats, helping both local businesses and national brands reach broad audiences every day. In addition to its more traditional out of home inventory, Lamar is proud to offer its customers the largest network of digital billboards in the United States with over 2,700 displays.

As the Senior Account Executive at the Terre Haute office, I have been with Lamar for 21+ years.  I began my career with Lamar in 1996 as an entry level customer service representative. Within a few years a sales position became available and with the support, encouragement and confidence of my family and coworkers, I was able to expand my career with Lamar to become a Sales Account Executive. I truly enjoy sharing with my clients the knowledge and expertise I’ve gained over the years, to provide an affordable and successful outdoor advertising campaign; from choosing the best locations to target their audience, to producing a brand or call to action message!


Why do you serve as an Ambassador?

I serve as an ambassador for the Terre Haute Chamber, so I might assist new businesses to become successful members of our community.  By attending ribbon cuttings and other functions, I am able to share the value of getting involved and local networking to our new members.  I also meet some very interesting people that I might not otherwise have had the pleasure.  Being involved in the community has its own rewards too.  That being, a sense of accomplishment and giving back to those who are like minded and ready to take our city to the next level!

Thank you for allowing me the honor of being an ambassador and the opportunity to help make our city great!

Thank you Pam for serving as an Ambassador through your commitment and dedication to the Chamber!
