The Colorado Springs Independent, the largest locally owned newspaper and media company serving the Pikes Peak region, is the "alternative voice" providing in-depth news and cultural reporting desperately needed in our heavily evangelical, military and Republican region.
The locally-owned Colorado Publishing House seeks a dynamic, passionate leader for the position of General Manager/Chief Revenue Officer. Our company’s motto: “Have Fun. Do Good. Make Money.”
We currently publish 7 award-winning newsweeklies – and their companion digital platforms -- including the Colorado Springs Independent, the Colorado Springs Business Journal, The Pikes Peak Bulletin as well as three newsweeklies on local Air Force and Army bases. Last year our non-profit arm, Give!, helped 75 local non-profits generate more than $1.5M dollars via donations from 8,000 individuals.
In February 2019 we will launch the Southeast Express, our eighth newspaper that will be mailed to 30,000 households.
The GM/CRO will be responsible for:
The ideal candidate for GM/CRO will have a strong background in sales leadership and a skillset that reflects both tactical and strategic abilities. Experience working with different types of publications and platforms is a plus.
The GM/CRO will work with sales leadership and sales executives to capture the huge revenue potential in this fast-growing western market. While revenue will be the primary focus of the GM/CRO, a candidate with the right background and abilities may assume greater responsibilities within the company including promotion/marketing, circulation, finance and business operations.
The culture of Colorado Publishing House is very entrepreneurial, diverse and journalistically-driven. We are passionate about our community and the important role good, local newspapers play.
