Dispatch Media Group veteran Stephen Zonars has been appointed vice president of sales.
Zonars has served most recently as general manager of Dispatch Consumer Shows and will retain those responsibilities in addition to overseeing advertising sales.
“Stephen is a 23-year veteran of the Dispatch and has previously run ThisWeek Community Media and Dispatch Consumer Services. His deep knowledge of the market and his track record of success in growing revenue at the Dispatch qualify him for the important job he is taking on,” said Jim Hopson, Dispatch interim publisher.
Abby Clark, who has led advertising sales for 10 years, will become senior special-projects executive for GateHouse Media, which bought the Dispatch Media Group in June.
Zonars is credited with increasing attendance at Dispatch Consumer Shows by more than 250 percent and creating strategies to help optimize the customer and vendor experience.
Before his work with Dispatch Consumer Shows, Zonars held leadership positions with ThisWeek Community Media, the Customer Relationship Manager Center, Dispatch Consumer Services, AmeriFlora '92 and AT&T.
