SAN BERNARDINO - Desmond & Louis, a full-service inland-based communications firm, announced today that it has recruited a veteran Inland reporter.

Joe Ascenzi, formerly with The Business Press and Press-Enterprise, has been named an account executive with Desmond & Louis.

Ascenzi, 52, will oversee several of the firm’s specialty publications, including IE Real Estate Insider , a weekly online newsletter that covers real estate and retail in the Inland Empire.

Ascenzi will assist Desmond & Louis with implementing press strategies for its many clients including the San Bernardino County Bar Association and the local chapter of the Urban Land Institute.

“We are pleased to add a journalist of Joe’s caliber and experience to our firm,” said Louis Desmond, president of Desmond & Louis. “We expect him to be a key fixture with the agency for years to come, especially in our growing number of specialty publications.”

Ascenzi spent 11 years with The Business Press, where he covered real estate and retail, before leaving in 2008. Much of his reporting appeared in The Press-Enterprise, a sister-publication of The Business Press.

He also covered local government and Los Angeles County transportation for the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, and worked in the Los Angeles and Orange County bureaus of City News Service.
