Ad salesman Greg Harrington celebrates 15 years at the Clarion

When he’s not working within the community, Greg is enjoying Alaska with his wife and stepdaughter.

Greg Harrington moved to Alaska in 1986 and spent his early years in the state working as a fishing guide.

Now, Greg, who works in marketing consultant and display advertising sales, is about to celebrate 15 years with the Clarion.

“Our goal is to boost sales in our local businesses and participation with our local nonprofits through print and digital ads,” Greg said. “Our printing costs, Our printing costs, payroll, utilities, etc. are all supported by the paid advertisers. In turn, we supply the 7,470 readers with important information on their sales and events”

When he’s not working within the community, Greg is enjoying Alaska with his wife and stepdaughter.

“In July 2018, married the love of my life Tina Hamlin and became blessed with the daily presence of 5-year-old stepdaughter, ShaeLynn,” Greg said. “We will enjoy all the Alaskan summer has to offer, swimming, fishing, dipnetting, camping and boating.”

To celebrate his upcoming wedding anniversary, Greg said he may start a tradition of exploring all the beauty that Alaska has to offer.

“My wife, Tina, recently received a suggestion on “what to do for our one year anniversary.” A local friend recommended visiting a different Alaskan town or city each year on our anniversary date,” Greg said. “Maybe we will start in Seldovia this year.”

To celebrate his recent work anniversary, Greg reminisced on how many business owners he’s been able to interact with over the years.

“As a sales representative for the Peninsula Clarion the last 15 years, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many business owners, realtors, city and State employees all of whom support the local paper through readership and advertising,” he said. “I thank our readers and business owners for their support!”
