Noble leaving post with county
After nearly three years as the public affairs coordinator
for Platte County, Doug Noble has turned in his letter
of resignation to further pursue his career in business
On Friday, May 31, Noble will say his final farewells
to the Platte County family.
When he first started in 1999, Noble stated the commission
was in the final stages of developing the county's strategic
plan, and that's where he was about to make his imprint
on the county.
"My main goal was meeting the commissioners' strategic
plan goal of keeping the community informed and involved
of all projects going on within the county," stated
Along with this key goal, Noble welcomed the responsibilities
of the county's web site, media relations, development
of special projects, coordination of public meetings,
development of a county newsletter, maintaining an e-mail
database, and advertising development for the county's
Convention and Visitors Bureau.
"I've really enjoyed working for Betty (Knight),
Michael (Short) and Steve (Wegner) and I appreciate how
much they've done for me," said Noble. "Working
for the commission has been great and I'll miss everybody
here at the county."
Noble's decision to leave the county came after a job
offer came from Employers Reinsurance Corporation of Overland
Park, KS. As an organizational communication specialist,
Noble will focus on internal communications within the
company beginning on June 3.
Since Noble's previous job experiences have been with
smaller businesses, he is looking forward to the opportunity
this position will provide him.
"Anytime you start a new position it's exciting.
This position will provide me the opportunity to gain
experience on a larger scale. I feel like it was an opportunity
I couldn't pass up," stated Noble.
Prior to working for Platte County, he served as a marketing
representative for four and a half years at The National
Association of Independent Truckers in Kansas City, Mo.
Noble is a 1994 graduate of the University of Kansas
with a bachelor of science degree in journalism with an
emphasis in business communication. He is currently pursuing
a master's degree in business administration at the University
