General Manager/Chief Executive Officer

The locally owned Colorado Publishing House seeks a dynamic, passionate leader for the position of General Manager/Chief Revenue Officer.

CPH is located in Colorado Springs, CO and publishes seven award-winning newsweeklies including the Colorado Springs Independent, the Colorado Springs Business Journal, The Pikes Peak Bulletin, as well as three newsweeklies at the local Air Force and Army bases. Last year CPH’s nonprofit arm, Give!, helped 75 local non-profits generate more than $1.5 dollars via donations from 8,000 individuals.

In February 2019 we will be launching the Southeast Express, our eighth newsweekly mailed to 30,000 households.

CPH is passionate about our home, and the Pikes Peak region and our goal is to enrich the lives of the people in the community.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Developing and driving revenue across all platforms and publications.
  • Helping our two group publishers manage and empower our dedicated staff members.
  • Community involvement and relationship building.

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.

TO APPLY:

Interested candidates should email a detailed resume to Publisher Amy Sweet at amy.sweet@csbj.com.
