Doug Copeland celebrates 30 years with Truck News




TORONTO, Ont. — Regional account manager Doug Copeland has recently celebrated his 30th anniversary with Truck News and Truck West magazines.

Copeland sells advertising for the publications as well as for Trucknews.com. He knows the industry and his clients and cares about the magazine itself, reading it cover to cover and often providing feedback to the editorial team.

He’s an old-school ad salesman, spending a good part of his month on the road visiting clients, taking pictures of their facilities and equipment for sale and serving as the intermediary between the magazine’s art department and his clients to ensure their ads are as effective as possible.

He also makes a habit of stopping by the truck stops on his journeys to support our distributors and ensure the magazines are displayed as they should be.

“Such dedication speaks to the character of the man,” said publisher and editorial director Lou Smyrlis. “Doug has contributed greatly over the past three decades to making Truck News and Truck West the industry’s best publications.”
