Sales Team


Doing our Best: Best of Santa Barbara is the biggest issue of each year for The Santa Barbara Independent ​— ​we even successfully trademarked the name a couple of years back! ​— ​so that means our sales team is out in force for many weeks leading up to this week’s edition, booking more than 300 display advertisements that then get made pretty by our stellar ad-production design team. The hard-working crews include Cynthia Walker and Laszlo Hodosy (not pictured) and (clockwise from front left) Jen Malkin, Cassi Lindberg, Marianne Kuga, Megan Packard Hillegas, Robby Robbins, Mark Hermann, Remzi Gokmen, Suzanne Cloutier, Camille Cimini Fruin, Gabrielle Dimaranan, Nina Chang, and Jason Gann.
