TO names new ad director

Stacy Hathaway

Stacy Hathaway is no stranger to Ogden’s family of newspapers.

Hathaway, who took on the Times Observer’s vacant Advertising Director position on Monday, said she worked at the Jamestown Post-Journal around 15 years ago, first in circulation and eventually working her way to the advertising department.

Around 2006, Hathaway said, she went to the Jamestown Penny Saver and for the last nine years has been the Advertising Sales Manager for the Warren County Guide.

“I’m looking forward to working for a daily paper,” said Hathaway, who said that she did work in advertising with a daily paper for a short time in North Carolina, but that the challenge of a daily paper as opposed to a weekly publication is something she’s excited about.

She’s also excited, she said, “to be able to sell digital products…,” as neither of her previous employers offered digital advertising.

And while the Jamestown native is looking to relocate to Warren now that she’s become a part of Ogden Newspapers once again, Hathaway remains a Jamestown resident for now.

“Building relationships with customers,” said Hathaway, is the thing she most enjoys about advertising. “And helping businesses grow.”
