Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer
Ellen Beaman’s dynamic presence and clarity of vision keep our firm operating at peak efficiency with our clients’ interests consistently at the forefront. Over the decade she spent representing small farmers to local restaurants across Austin prior to joining the firm, Ellen developed a solution-based marketing method that relies less on selling, and more on uniting mutually beneficial parties and fostering the resulting relationships. This approach guarantees our clients benefit not only from our deliverables, but also our understanding of their mission and commitment to their long-term success.
Beyond her development role, Ellen manages day-to-day operations and contributes to individual projects using her administrative skills and background in communications. She is currently overseeing renovations to the Bee Cave City Hall, and previously served as LEED administrator for the seven fire stations included in Austin Fire Department Phase 6 Renovations, achieving LEED Gold or Silver certifications for each individual site. Elsewhere, Ellen’s efforts can be seen in the final report generated for the ESB-MACC Phase 2 Master Plan and our public engagement efforts on dozens of projects over the past five years, including the Village of Salado All-Abilities Playground.
Ellen received her Bachelor of Science in Agronomy from Texas Tech University. She is the Board Secretary for the Bee Cave Friends of the Parks, an Ambassador for the Austin Parks Foundation and a member of the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce. Ellen has taught Sustainable Agriculture and Landscape Horticulture for many years as an Adjunct Professor at Austin Community College.
Ellen is a plant lover, Tolkien enthusiast, roller derby veteran, and mother to Hank the betta fish and Felix the cat.
