Valley Echo advertising sales now open

Angela Krebs has 20 years experience in the Columbia Valley.

The Valley Echo is pleased to announce that Angela Krebs has joined our team as the new full-time advertising sales consultant.

Krebs has lived in the Columbia Valley for almost 20 years. Originally from Saskatchewan, she moved to Radium Hot Springs in 1993, when her parents entered the ice cream/souvenir business, and they are still running the same café at the Radium Hot Springs today. The move came after years of her family spending weekends in the area and experiencing the beauty of the valley.

Angela enjoys living in the mountains and spending time outdoors camping, quading, snowboarding and spending time at the lake with her three children — Connor, 10, Callie, 7, and Courtenay, 5.

“I am very involved in the community and have done a lot of volunteering with the schools, play groups and local sports,” Angela said.

She has been very involved in the local business community over the years, from owning Angela’s Pooch Parlor in Invermere, to running a licensed child care when her children were younger, to working at Investors Group and helping families with financial planning and insurance.

“I feel my background in sales is going to help me with my new role at the paper and look forward to being a part of The Valley Echo team,” she said.

Angela said she is looking forward to working with all the different types of businesses in the Columbia Valley and helping them communicate what they can do for the community.

“My job as an advertising consultant is to make sure our clients are getting results from their ads so it benefits them and helps them grow their businesses,” she said. “I want them to feel comfortable working with me and know that I have their best interests in mind.”

Angela is excited to meet and get to know all of The Valley Echo’s existing and new future clients.

She can be reached by email at advertising@invermerevalleyecho.com, at The Valley Echo building at 530-13th Street in Invermere by calling 250-342-9216, or via her mobile device at 250-341-5216.
