Digital First Media, which operates MediaNews Group, Journal Register Co. and Digital First Ventures, has named Eric Lamont Mayberry as Journal Register Co.’s regional vice president of sales for Pennsylvania and Shelley Meenan as Pennsylvania publisher and general manager.
Mayberry will be responsible for all digital and print advertising sales across the company’s Pennsylvania group and Meenan will lead operations for the group. Both will report directly to Edward Condra, Journal Register Co.’s senior publisher for Pennsylvania.
“Eric’s knowledge of the Greater Philadelphia market, his proven record as a sales leader and his high level of energy will bolster our sales organization in Pennsylvania. Shelley’s experience with our operations as well as her familiarity with our Pennsylvania team will make her successful in this new role,” said Condra.
Mayberry, who most recently served as vice president sales for The News Journal Media Group, a Gannett publishing division in Delaware, has nearly 20 years’ experience in advertising, marketing and publishing. He is the former president and publisher of metro Philadelphia and director of advertising for the Philadelphia Daily News.
“Journal Register Co. provides tremendous opportunity for businesses to reach a growing audience in and around Greater Philadelphia. I look forward to working with the sales teams across the region to make the most of those opportunities for our advertisers,” Mayberry said.
Meenan, who started her career with The Times Herald in Norristown in 1988, has held a number of leadership positions within the company.
“Journal Register Co. has been successful in creating a network across the company’s Pennsylvania group that allows our sales, content and distribution teams to work together. I look forward to being able to take that work to the next level and help our teams find new ways to grow and meet customer expectations and demands,” she said.
