New publisher named at Record-Courier

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. – In a reorganization designed to improve client communication and services, Sierra Nevada Media Group, parent company to The Record-Courier and the Nevada Appeal, has undergone a structural reorganization.

Niki Gladys will take on the role of publisher of The Record-Courier in addition to her current role as publisher of the Nevada Appeal. Gladys lives in Minden with her husband and two children.

“I’m thrilled to be leading such a community-based organization,” Gladys said. “The Record-Courier will continue to be the premier source for local news and information for Douglas County.”

Gladys replaces Charlie Pankey, who served as publisher since August of 2008. Pankey has taken on a critical role as key account manager in charge of developing commercial print business as well as supporting some of the news organization’s most important customers.

“Charlie’s work in the community has been impressive,” said Gladys, who went on to say that she appreciates Charlie’s passion for the community and his willingness to continue participating in Carson Valley life, his position on the Chamber of Commerce board and as a youth basketball coach.

“Now is the time to be close to our customers,” said Gladys. “This economy has been tough on businesses in the area. Our goal with this change is to create a more customer-friendly organization.”

The reorganization also includes the addition of an advertising director and a receptionist for The Record-Courier front lobby.
