Teresa “Terry” Coomes has been named vice president of sales and marketing for the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal, effective Aug. 2.
Since 2007, Coomes has served as publisher of the Independent Tribune in Kannapolis, N.C. In her new capacity, she will be responsible for newspaper, magazine, direct-mail and digital sales for the Journal and its affiliated publications.
She succeeds Jeffrey Green, who was appointed publisher of the Journal in June. Coomes first joined the Journal in 1986 as a zone saleswoman, and served as its direct marketing manager from 2000 to 2006.
“Terry has a long history with Media General, the Winston-Salem Journal and our business community,” Green said in a statement. “We believe her energy and creativity will be a great asset to us as we continue our transition to a multi-media sales organization.”
