LEXINGTON, Neb. - It was announced this week that Heather Heinemann has been appointed to the position of General Manager of the Lexington Clipper-Herald.

Heinemann has been a sales representative at the Clipper-Herald since May 2013. Prior to that, she was the Community Relations Director at what was then called Park Avenue Estates (now Brookdale Lexington).

“When the girls from the Clipper-Herald would come see me at Park Avenue, their excitement at getting the news out about what we had to offer was my first experience with a newspaper,” Heinemann said. “I wanted to be a part of that, so I contacted the publisher at the time and said I wanted to learn more about it.”

Heinemann is a lifelong resident of the Lexington area and now lives with her husband, Dan, near Darr. She has three children (Laura Strode, Tanner Nelson, and Tasia Strickland) and two granddaughters. She is active in area organizations, and in 2015 she was named Ambassador of the Year by the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce.

Heinemann assumes her new role Monday, Oct. 10. She will be responsible for all aspects of the Clipper-Herald’s operation.

“I am excited Heather has stepped forward to lead the Clipper-Herald team,” said Shon Barenklau, a BH Media Group Vice President in charge of the company’s Midwest Division. “We are expecting big things from Lexington under Heather’s direction.”

Current publisher Katy Bergstrom has accepted the position of lead salesperson for Big Red Auto Book out ofGrand Island.

“Katy’s roots are in advertising and the Big Red Auto opportunity is a great fit for all involved,” said Barenklau.
