Hatfield, Venus join NCBR ‘s sales team

The Northern Colorado Business Report has added two new members to its sales team.

Janet Hatfield comes to her position as an NCBR account executive from the Fort Collins Coloradoan, where she spent seven years selling in the employment and health-care territories. She comes by her newspaper expertise naturally, as her mother and stepfather met while editing for the Oklahoma City Oklahoman.

Prior to joining the Coloradoan, Hatfield owned Brusard’s Cajun restaurant in Loveland, and has managed a number of other eateries throughout Northern Colorado as well.

She will be working with NCBR advertising clients in a wide range of industries, including technology, automotive and green business, offering opportunities both in print and online.

“I think of myself as a consultant rather than ‘just a salesperson,'” Hatfield said. “I like to be a part of a team, helping clients make the right decisions for their businesses to be a success.”

Michelle Venus is NCBR‘s new advertising project manager. She was most recently Goddess of New Business Development for Toolbox Creative in Fort Collins, but has also used her divine skills to run her own marketing consulting business, Michelle Venus Associates, also based in Fort Collins.

Originally from New Jersey, Venus lived for 13 years in Manhattan, while she worked for several film and video production and post-production companies, interacting with ad agencies and their clients from Boston to Atlanta.

She will be supporting both the sales and marketing efforts at NCBR. An accomplished copywriter, she will be involved in creating and marketing custom publishing projects for clients as well as participating in the Business Report‘s many events.

“I look forward to being able to use all my skills as part of the NCBR team,” Venus said.
