Newspaper veteran Tina West is the new vice president of sales and marketing for The Times (Nobles­ville) and The Paper of Montgomery County (Crawfordsville).

West, who previously held publisher jobs in both Noblesville and New Castle, will be responsible for sales and training.

“I am very much enjoying this role,” she said. “I love the direct contact with our advertisers and the opportunity to create and implement new ideas.”

West has already started working with the ad staffs at both papers.

“I have always thought training was one of my best skills,” she said. “I could speak to 20 or 2,000. I just believe in newspapers. Period.”
