Circulation Manager

The Montrose Press, a Wick Communications newspaper, is seeking an experienced, hands-on Circulation Manager to lead our team and manage all aspects of our growing circulation department.

Exceptional service is a vital component. Almost 5,000 area homes count on timely, quality delivery of the Montrose Press six mornings a week. You will also ensure delivery of our TMC product and distribution of quarterly magazines. That means working with our fine crew of independent contractors, handling subscription starts and stops and resolving delivery issues. It also means building relationships with single-copy dealer outlets and making sure coin-operated machines look appealing and work well.

‪Sales: ‬Sales is equally important. Residents are subscribing, our products are improving and we don’t wait for a customer to walk through the door. Developing our messages, tailoring them to prospective customers and growing our customer base are all part of the opportunity. Marketing know-how and follow through are a must. The successful candidate must be able to consistently meet and surpass revenue, expense and volume targets.

‪Management: ‬As circulation manager, you will lead by example, always making sure the job is done to the highest standard. You will inspire and energize your team members with effective coaching and feedback. As part of the leadership team at the Montrose Press, you’re charged with making decisions to enhance the entire company.

‪Education and experience: ‬The ideal candidate will have earned a college degree, or equivalent work-place experience. You don’t have to have extensive newspaper circulation management experience…though it would be helpful.

This is not an easy job; it’s not an entry-level position and not 8am – 5pm. It is best suited for someone with a track record of success who is very prideful in their work and eager to build a solid team.

The position is salaried; it may require some nights, early morning and weekend time. You will need a personal car with insurance coverage; we’ll reimburse normal business expenses. Competitive compensation is tied to your ambition, experience and capabilities. We offer a nice package of medical, vacation, bonus and other benefits.

If you are not familiar with Montrose, we are on the Western Colorado slope near Telluride. The location does not get any better. Think skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, art and music.

Please send cover letters, resume and salary history to: Vincent Laboy, Publisher, The Montrose Press, 3684 N. Townsend Ave., Montrose, CO 81401 or vincentl@montrosepress.com.

Expires: January 18, 2014
