Welcome back to the North Island Gazette Lisa!

“My coming back to the Gazette is a great thing.”

Lisa Harrison is back at the North Island Gazette.

“I’m excited to bring the digital world to the North Island,” said Harrison, who added her position will be helping the businesses in the community be a part of the digital world. “I’ll also be helping the Gazette by giving them more of an online presence,” said Harrison. “The Gazette has a great presence already as a newspaper, but the way of the world now is online, so it’s really great to be able to help Black Press and the Gazette help businesses on the North Island by making them more well known in the digital space here and also all over B.C.”

Harrison added it’s an exciting time for Black Press and the Gazette. “We get to move forward with new products and offer new services. I’ll be out in the community a lot, really making our presence known.”

Harrison, who grew up in Port McNeill and then moved to Port Hardy when she was 19, worked at the Gazette for two-and-a-half years back in 2013-2014 as a Sales Representative, before making the decision to work for the Canadian Cancer Society.

“I had always been a volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, so when I saw the chance to work for them it was a no brainer.”

After two years with the Canadian Cancer Society, Harrison ended up opening up her own business in Port Hardy, Inspired Graphics.

Due to allergies with the chemicals in the ink, Harrison sold her business and then made the decision to come back home to Black Press.

“My coming back to the Gazette is a great thing,” said Harrison.

Harrison will be bringing new events to the North Island including Local Heroes, Lifestyle Expo, Readers’ Choice as well as sales of website development including search engine optimization, online advertising sales including programmatic, retargeting and geofencing and google adwords.

In addition to the digital space, Harrison will also sell Black Press’s magazine properties including the North Island Wave magazine, Comox Valley Trio magazine and Soar magazine (Pacific Coastal on board magazine).
