LYNDA ELLIS, Owner, CEO and President Capitol Concierge
Lynda Ellis is an entrepreneur who recognizes that the individual service experience is paramount to success. Last year, she successfully launched three companies—The Rowe Agency, Capitol Concierge England, LTD and Capitol Concierge Ireland, LTD. In addition, through a partnership with Generali Global Assistance, she expanded Capitol Concierge’s business base in the international market. Today, Capitol Concierge serves well over one million people in some of the world’s most prestigious properties and companies.
Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Ellis developed her entrepreneurial spirit at an early age. While a student at St. Mary’s University, she started her first business (not counting the babysitting business she started at 12), a customized gift company. Prior to purchasing Capitol Concierge, she spent more than 25 years in the computer-based education and training industry and was the co-owner of a successful instructional technology company.
Her passion for giving back goes back to the early age of 12, visiting hospitals wherever she has lived and continues to this day. Ellis is an active member of the community and leads corporate efforts with her civic involvement in organizations such as The American Red Cross Tiffany Circle, the Yellow Ribbon Fund, St. James’ Episcopal Church, the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association and more.
Ellis’ recent accomplishments include joining the board of trustees for St. Mary’s University, being named to The Daily Record’s 2018 Maryland Top 100 Women List and receiving the 2017 Moxie Award for boldness in business and the 2016 Profiles in Success Award. In addition, Capitol Concierge was named to the Washington Business Journal’s 2018 Class of Family-Owned Businesses.
