Aurora -- Record Publishing Co. took on a new advertising representative, Mike Kohl, of Ravenna, effective last month. He will primarily focus on the Aurora area.
Kohl went to Hiram College and earned a degree in economics, with a minor in sociology. He has experience mostly in the insurance industry, having worked for more than 20 years in that field.
"I worked in my family's agency in Ravenna," he said. "I also worked for Progressive Insurance in Mayfield in a division that sold liability insurance to community banks."
"This is a completely new area for me," added Kohl. "I grew up being a consumer of the news. My dad taught me to read the paper and we had three daily papers in the house."
Kohl said what interests him is all that is done at the Record Publishing Co.
"What appealed to me was how much gets accomplished at Record Publishing -- all the daily, weekly and specialty products that are produced and published," said Kohl. "Put them all together and they have a large impact on many people and businesses."
Kohl said his goal is to grow the paper, add more content and make the process of placing an ad in the Advocate simpler.
"I'd like to take care of our customers and advertisers and be the person they can come to for help telling their story or getting their message out."
Kohl can be reached at 330-541-9400 ext. 4127 or firstname.lastname@example.org
