Karn Crooks has been with the Rockford Squire newspaper as an account representative since June, 2009.
Karn grew up on the east side of the state in a suburb between Detroit and Ann Arbor, where most of her roots were planted. Now she lives in Rockford and many of her family members have transfered to the Grand Rapids area.
In sales and marketing for over 30 years, Karn has worked in areas ranging from a manufacturer’s rep in the sporting goods and fitness industry to selling international foods in the Atlanta, Georgia metro area.
“My job is always an adventure, not only because I am able to travel to many different areas in the greater Rockfcord area, Grand Rapids, and surrounding communities, but also because I get a lot of pleasure out of meeting a diverse group of clients and prospective clients,” Karn said. “I like learning about their business and how our paper can best serve them. They deserve the best treatment because they are what keeps our paper going.”
When not working, Karn enjoys music, watching and playing sports as well as gardening and enjoying the beautiful birds we have in West Michigan.
The Squire is very fortunate to have such a professional and personable group of staff members and we enjoy sharing their stories with our readers.
