The Globe is described as a daily with 24,000 circulation in an Editor & Publisher ad for an advertising director posted today:
The advertising director must possess a keen understanding of print and digital advertising, as well as audience-based selling. We need someone with a track record in advertising leadership who can create and execute a multi-platform sales strategy including print, niche publications, websites and mobile products.
Our advertising director develops revenue opportunities through acquisition, retention and consultative selling. The advertising director works with key accounts, drawing upon a large base of small businesses, makes sales calls and attends community and client events.
The ability to quickly assess situations, create innovative plans and establish superior partnerships and relationships is essential. We need a skilled leader who can train, recruit and develop a committed sales and marketing organization.
