Kami Ritz has been named publisher of the Stettler Independent

With former publisher Randy Holt moving on to new ventures, Kami Ritz has been appointed as the publisher of the Stettler Independent, effective Jan. 1, 2017.

Ritz was first hired by former publisher Marlene Conibear as an advertising sales representative in Dec. 2007. Through her perseverance and creativeness, Ritz has been able to navigate her sales career successfully within the company.

Over the past nine years, Ritz has shown great promise and has built and firmly ensconced relationships with local businesses in the community.

Moving from Edmonton to Stettler nine years back, Ritz was able to quickly adjust to a more communal and rural landscape from the hustle and bustle of city life, because Stettler had been a second home to her since she was 10 years old. It is a place where she had spent many a summer and holidays with her family. Now this wonderful community is what Ritz calls her home.

Having worked in various positions throughout her career within the company, from customer service and marketing to management, Ritz takes on the position with confidence and pride.

“The Stettler Independent and the Castor Advance have been serving the communities for over 100 years and along with the Regional Weekender I will strive to ensure that our readers and clients are happy and proud of our local community newspaper,” Ritz said.

We hope you will welcome her with as much excitement as we have, and look forward to the exciting times ahead.
