The Grid grows sales team

The Torstar-owned weekly promotes Carrie Gillis to associate publisher and adds to the sales team.

Torstar-owned weekly The Grid is making changes in its sales department, starting with the promotion of Carrie Gillis (pictured) from director of sales to associate publisher.

Laas Turnbull, publisher and editor and chief, The Grid, tells MiC the promotion frees Gillis to focus on the business development side of the weekly. Jamie Harju has been promoted to the role of sales manager.

The Grid has also added Katie Gallagher as sponsorship and events manager and hired two new sales representatives, with Matt Stokes and Kayla Podolak joining the team. These additions are a result of the paper bringing its retail sales back in-house after outsourcing them to Primedia, says Turnbull.
