ANDERSON has left the building — well sort of.
Peter Anderson officially finishes up with the Campaspe News on Friday after almost six years at the advertising helm.
And his replacement may have just been sent from above. Or from the Riv.
Meet Grace Angel.
She may not have a halo but she has a wealth of knowledge and is raring to go.
‘‘I moved from Eltham in Melbourne just over three years ago to Shepparton to start as an advertising co-ordinator at the Shepp News,’’ she said.
‘‘I spent three years there in basically an admin role for the sales consultants and loved it but when a maternity position came up at the Riv I jumped at the opportunity.
‘‘I was with the Riv for basically four months before taking over from Peter at the Campaspe News and McIvor Times.
‘‘It was just the right timing for me and I am really excited to get to know all of our clients and be a part of the community.’’
Grace has dealt with a broad range of clients in both her prior positions.
‘‘I spent a lot of time in Kilmore growing up and Nagambie now I am older so I understand small country towns,’’ she said.
‘‘And I understand that talking to people is the best way to get things done.
‘‘I invite every one to come and say g’day or knock on the door and come and have a chat.’’
And Peter’s final words: ‘‘I have enjoyed the latest chapter in my life for the past six years with McPherson Media,’’ he said.
‘‘I was a bit lost after the closure of Retravision so for this opportunity to open up just a week after that was incredible.
‘‘I want to thank the whole company but I especially enjoyed working alongside the Riv team.
‘‘In particular the production team who have made all of the adverts look more professional than I could imagine.
‘‘I invite the community to continue to pop in and have a chat to Grace or one of the journalists about anything happening in town.
‘‘The local paper is very important to our town and we always need the local input to keep making it great.’’
Now in retirement, Peter assures he will improve his golfing handicap and still be seen around town.
