I have had the pleasure of working with Weston Wamp for four years now. Weston, myself, and a few others first started Lamp Post Group on Rossville Boulevard in an old warehouse. We launched LPG with one goal in mind -- to help make Chattanooga into a destination city for businesses, entrepreneurs, and innovators here in the southeast. And that is exactly what is happening right now, thanks to Weston’s proactive leadership.
Over the past four years, he has helped recruit companies, lead sales teams, and handle our messaging. In 2010, Lamp Post Group had exactly one company in our roster. We now have 15 thriving companies in our portfolio. Heck, Google has even co-invested with one of our Lamp Post Group companies. Yes, Google is investing in Chattanooga.
I am continuously amazed by Weston's work ethic, candor and his unbelievable job at communicating. He is a consummate team player and he does an incredible job of bringing people together. He will be a force in D.C. for the 3rd District. I have no doubt in my mind.
I will not mud sling our current congressman, but if we continue to send the same type people to Washington, we will continue to get the same results. We need someone with fresh ideas, bold leadership, and a desire to make a difference. And I could think of no better person to bring those virtues to the table than the man I have worked alongside the last four years at LPG.
I believe in Weston Wamp.
