Carpenter promoted to circulation manager in Brandermill


Richmond, VA – The Richmond Times-Dispatch has promoted Leanne Carpenter to circulation manager for the Brandermill distribution center, one of five delivery hubs for the newspaper.


Carpenter started her career as an independent newspaper carrier for The Times-Dispatch before becoming a district supervisor, a position she has held since 2011.


“Her experience gives her a well-rounded background in all facets of the distribution operation,” said David Kirkman, vice president of audience services. “She has been at or near the top of customer service scores in the areas she has worked. Her commitment to subscriber service and always striving for continual improvement will serve her well in her new duties.”


As the circulation manager for one of two distribution centers in Chesterfield County, Carpenter will be responsible for ensuring all 37 independent contractors are providing excellent service each day. Her responsibilities will include delivery of The Times-Dispatch along with all the national newspapers we also distribute.


She will also supervise the distribution of our two non-subscriber newspapers, Sunday Direct and the Chesterfield RTD, and the 38 carriers that deliver them.  The Chesterfield RTD has the largest circulation of any newspaper in Chesterfield.


Carpenter will graduate from the University of Phoenix later this summer with a degree in Business Management.
