Gannett Regional Vice President David Foster is assuming leadership over the advertising sales division of the Spartanburg (South Carolina) Herald-Journal.
Foster currently oversees The Greenville News and Anderson Independent Mail, as well as the publications in Asheville, North Carolina; Montgomery, Alabama; and Hattiesburg and Jackson, Mississippi.
“Since the merger of the Gatehouse and Gannett newspaper groups, we have seen many opportunities to provide better services to our communities, bringing the Greenville and Spartanburg teams closer together certainly was a priority,” Foster said. “I look forward to working with the great community of Spartanburg and I am excited to add my experience to the local team.”
Publisher Kevin Drake left the Spartanburg Herald-Journal May 15.
