Errin Stanger has been named director of Winrock’s Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub. Stanger has been part of the Hub team since its founding in 2014. She has served in numerous roles at the Hub, most recently as deputy director and as acting director.
“Errin’s long history with the Innovation Hub and her commitment to creativity and equity make her uniquely positioned to lead the Hub team to solve new challenges,” said Linsley Kinkade, senior director of Winrock’s U.S. Programs. “We are thrilled to welcome her to this role.”
The Innovation Hub, which opened in 2014, is a non-profit organization that provides maker space and training for entrepreneurs, students, and other makers.
Stanger is the first woman to lead the organization.
“Being the first female leader of the Innovation Hub is not something that I take lightly,” Stanger said. “My role is an example for other women that they can do this. It is an honor to step into this position, and I am thankful to those who have walked alongside our previous leaders. I thank each of them for their support and guidance.”
Winrock International announced earlier this year it would move its headquarters to the Hub’s location in downtown Little Rock in 2022.
