Introducing Kim Barber, Oak Bay News media sales consultant

Welcoming the newest member of Oak Bay News team

The Oak Bay News is proud to introduce its newest team member, media sales consultant Kim Barber.

Kim brings a wealth of experience to the Oak Bay News from more than two decades of sales experience in furniture, auto, finance, print industries and more.

“What brings me here is the opportunity to be a part of a well-known company,” Kim said. “Black Press embraces the community by keeping it informed of stories and providing content that is relevant to the everyday lives of the people that call it home.”

Kim spent much of her adult life in Northern and the Okanagan and has also lived in Nanaimo and Powell River.

She is fairly new to Oak Bay but has already recognized the qualities that make the community special.

“My journey to get here has taken some time but it has been worth it,” Kim said. “I am very excited to spend my days in perhaps the most beautiful community in Canada and I am looking forward to learning more about the community and what makes it unique.

“It is rewarding to be a part of something that contributes to the community and helps our local advertisers thrive in a very competitive marketplace,” Kim said.

“I have enjoyed meeting members of the community and working with a great team of professionals.”

Kim is available at 250-480-3234 or kim.barber@oakbaynews.com from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday each week. Feel free to stop by the office at 207 A, 2187 Oak Bay Ave. (upstairs in Athlone Court) to say hi!
