Veteran Journalist Joins Division of Economic Development

The New Hampshire Division of Economic Development announces the hiring of Lorna Colquhoun of Franconia as the Communications and Legislative Director.

“We are excited to have a high performance player like Lorna joining our team,” said Christopher S. Way, Interim Director. “She is well known in her field, and her experience will allow us to expand our outreach activities to the public regarding business assistance.”

Colquhoun spent 20 years as a freelance correspondent for the New Hampshire Union Leader, beginning in the Monadnock region before moving to the North Country, and at several other newspapers, including the Granite State News in Wolfeboro, the Coos County Democrat in Lancaster and The Telegraph of Nashua. Her work has also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and other national and regional publications and most recently was the editor of New Hampshire: First in the Nation, highlighting businesses and photographs of the Granite State.

“I’ve had the good fortune for many years to tell the stories of the Granite State, from many points of view,” Colquhoun said. “I’m looking forward to continuing that – telling the stories of the New Hampshire economy and the people and ideas that make it the envy of New England and beyond.”

The Communications and Legislative Director is responsible for developing, directing and managing the public relations, promotional, and marketing strategies and programs for the Division of Economic Development.
