LITTLE ROCK (Aug. 21, 2017) – Businessman Mark Camp of Little Rock has been chosen as the new director of the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission. Camp succeeds Robert Phelps, who retired July 1 after nearly 20 years in the position.
“Mark has a keen interest and high ideals related to keeping our state litter-free,” said Kane Webb, executive director of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism (ADPT), of which KAB is a division. “His business acumen and leadership skills, paired with his personal passion, will serve the state well. He understands the impact KAB’s mission has on our state’s No. 2 economic driver – tourism – and I’m ready to work with him to continue identifying creative solutions and effective tools toward a clean, green and litter-free Natural State.”
Camp expressed enthusiasm for this new opportunity. “I love Arkansas! I care about our beautiful state,” he said. “The litter on our roadways has always been a personal pet peeve, and I’m anxious to dig in, meet and brainstorm with those who are also passionate about this issue, and continue to build KAB’s programs and presence around the state.”
