Nancy Green has been named vice president of circulation for Lee Enterprises’ St. Louis group and president of STL Distribution Services. She was most recently publisher of The Courier in Waterloo/Cedar Falls, Iowa. David Braton, advertising director at the Courier, will take Green’s place.
Green has also served as Lee’s vice president of circulation since 2002. In her new position, she will oversee all of circulation in St. Louis, including the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis.
“Nancy is one of the sharpest circulation experts in the industry,” Kevin Mowbray, Lee’s vice president and publisher of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, said in a statement. “She has spent a lot of time here over the last two years giving us good guidance, and we’re thrilled that she’s joining us as a full-time member of our team.”
Before joining Lee in 2000, Green was vice president of the University System of Georgia. She also served as the assistant to the president of the newspaper division at the Gannett Co. She served as publisher at two Gannett papers, the Springfield (Mo.) News-Leader and the Palladium-Item in Richmond, Ind.
Green is also the president of the NAA Circulation Federation.
Braton joined Lee in 1999 as director of sales at The Bismarck (N.D.) Tribune. He was general manager of the Beatrice (Neb.) Daily Sun. Before joining Lee, he was a stockholder and director of publications for Davon Press.
Greg Veon, Lee vice president of publishing, said in a statement they didn’t even bother posting the open position for publisher of the Courier. “It was clear that David is a natural fit,” he said.
