Business Journal hires new advertising director

Sue Hamilton, who has worked at newspaper publishing companies throughout the U.S., has joined the Colorado Springs Business Journal as advertising director.

Hamilton for the past two years served as the national sales manager for Media Marketing Inc., a Boulder software company that serves the newspaper business.

“The Colorado Springs business community is sophisticated — and it needs to have a paper that keeps them up-to-date on local business news. That’s the Business Journal’s strength,” she said.

Hamilton experience includes work at Freedom Communications Inc. in Colorado Springs, where she was vice president of marketing and Internet development. She also was director of sales for Olive Software, a Denver company that specializes in digital publishing technology.

A journalism graduate of Ball State in Muncie, Ind., Hamilton is also immediate past president and a board member of the Colorado Independent Publishers Association.
