The Galveston County Daily News names new advertising director
The Galveston County Daily News (Galveston, Texas) has announced the promotion of Debbie Keith to advertising director.
As the advertising director, Keith will perform day-to-day management of the newspaper's display and classified advertising staffs, develop and negotiate major and national accounts and focus on new product development in both print and digital publications, Leonard Woolsey, president and publisher of The Daily News, said.
She also will oversee the creative services department, which produces Coast Monthly, as well as more than a half-dozen other magazine titles.
"I am thrilled to have Debbie take this key role for us at The Daily News," Woolsey said.
"Debbie is not only a talented, hardworking professional, but highly regarded by both our staff and clients."
Keith came to work for The Daily News in September 1993 as a classified sales representative.
By November 2007, she had worked her way through the ranks to become retail advertising manager, the post she held until last Friday.
"I love this newspaper, the staff and clients," Keith said. "I am excited to work alongside everyone to help create the best community newspaper for Galveston County."
