A note form Colleen

All,

I’m excited to announce that Lee Bachlet (pronounced baak-let) has joined the National Sales Team as a Director of Sales. Filling Wendell Pedigo’s position, Lee will manage a group of the T61 accounts such as Home Depot, Lowe’s, AT&T, Walgreens, and Walmart. Lee brings considerable experience with national accounts as he was formerly the Retail Advertising Director at the St. Louis Post Dispatch for key accounts.  Prior to that, Lee was on my team at the Denver Newspaper Agency where he was responsible for TMC, Mail, Travel, Special Sections, key accounts and national. Lee is extremely committed to and passionate about the industry and very sales and customer-oriented.  He has spent much time in the field negotiating contracts and developing solutions for major advertisers. He has much experience building strong proposals with solid, multi-media reach and frequency. You can reach Lee at (removed)@gannett.com and will no doubt meet him in the coming months.

Thanks,

Colleen.
