Strategies 360 is pleased to announce the further expansion of our Colorado office with the addition of Lynea Hansen as senior vice president. Lynea is a strategic communications pro with deep expertise in public affairs and a background in political communications.
Previously, Lynea ran her own Denver consulting firm, Hansen Communications, where she worked with a wide variety of corporate, non-profit, and legislative clients including Microsoft, the Higher Education Access Alliance and National Popular Vote. Lynea has successfully represented a wide variety of public policy positions at the state and local level, ranging from requiring carbon monoxide detectors in homes to helping undocumented students receive in-state tuition to promoting local economic development.
“Lynea has a tremendously successful track record in Colorado and a winning way with important issues across the state. She’s a tremendous addition to our team,” said Tyler Chafee, head of S360’s Colorado operations.
In the political arena, Lynea worked on campaigns ranging from Congressional races to City Council contests to ballot initiatives and the Denver mayoral race, often performing a dual role of campaign manager and spokesperson. Realizing there was a gap in understanding between the people and groups advocating a position and community leaders, Lynea left the day-to-day campaign world behind and created her own firm to fill that gap on numerous issues. She has also consulted on business development plans and served as a budget analyst.
“We’re thrilled that more and more incredibly talented people like Lynea are joining our firm,” said Ron Dotzauer, S360 co-founder and CEO. “Our strong growth is allowing us to provide our clients with unmatched expertise and reach to achieve their objectives.”
Lynea was born and raised in Southeastern Colorado, where the cows outnumber the residents and water is the most precious commodity. Lynea enjoys living in downtown Denver and often leaves “the big city” to visit the “farm,” so she can find some political and life balance.
She has a bachelor’s in communication and political science from the University of Colorado Boulder and received her master’s in public administration from the University of Colorado Denver.
