Loren Colburn, publisher of the Scotsman Press, has been appointed executive director of the Association of Free Community Papers (AFCP). The selection was made after a three-month process and announced during the association’s winter board meeting. Colburn has served as president of the AFCP and is currently its secretary-treasurer.
“We are very excited to have Loren Colburn in this key leadership position,” Orestes Baez, current president of the AFCP, said in a statement. “Loren is the consummate professional and has the skill set and leadership strength to bring this organization through this most difficult chapter and up into new heights and direction.”
During his presentation, Colburn emphasized several key advertising initiatives such as adding a banner ad network and display ad network. “Among the many priorities expressed by the board over the past few years, focusing on expanding the revenue opportunities that helps AFCP provide more member benefits is a critical success factor for us going forward,” Colburn said.
Colburn succeeds Craig McMullin, who lost his life last year in an accident.
