Crittendon just celebrated 18 years in the newspaper business. She started her career in the Seattle area with the former King County Journal Newspapers, where she was a Recruitment Sales Specialist in the Classified Department before being promoted to Telephone Sales Supervisor. She spent time as Classified Advertising Manager at the Great Falls (Montana) Tribune, San Angelo (Texas) Standard-Times, the Topeka (Kansas) Capital-Journal and The Berkshire (Massachusetts) Eagle. She progressed to Targeted Media Publications Manager with the New Haven (Connecticut) Register and The Republican in Springfield, Massachusetts.

“I am very pleased we could promote someone as promising as Carol from within the Wick Communications organization,” said Wick President and CEO Tom Yunt. “This internal promotion is a strong signal to others within Wick to aspire for bigger and better professional opportunities in the company.”
