Moves over from the
New circulation director for Bulletin, MidWeek
Joe Leong has been appointed circulation director for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and MidWeek publications.
For the past six years, Leong has been the circulation marketing manager for the Honolulu Advertiser. Before that, he was circulation director for The Times in Shreveport, La. Both of those papers are owned by Gannett Co.
Leong, who has 20 years of experience in newspaper circulation marketing, including 18 years with Gannett, has a bachelor's degree in business administration from New Mexico State University.
"Joe brings us a wealth of local market knowledge and experience," said Dennis Francis, president and publisher of the Star-Bulletin. "I couldn't have been more pleased to have recruited a senior executive with Joe's extensive newspaper background and solid track record."
Leong succeeds Mike Jones, who will retire in October after a lengthy newspaper career.
