MARYSVILLE — Scott Sherwood comes to The Marysville Globe and The Arlington Times with decades of experience not only in sales, but also in the local area.
“Both of my parents were in sales when I was growing up,” said Sherwood, the new outside salesperson for The Marysville Globe and The Arlington Times, who will be working alongside Terrie McClay. “Between that and the sales campaigns I did as a kid, from Boy Scouts to school fundraisers, I feel like I’ve been selling all my life.”
A desk job at Microsoft impressed upon Sherwood that “I like dealing with people better than computers,” and a stint as a Farmers Insurance agent gave him the face-to-face contact with customers that he’d been craving. His experience in GTE Yellow Pages’ Superpages.com likewise gave him experience with advertising and marketing on the web, and the past 20 years have familiarized him with life in Marysville.
“We moved here in 1993 and all three of my kids have graduated from Marysville schools,” Sherwood said. “Our two girls work at the Everett Clinic, and Junior is an accountant in Bellingham. As I’ve watched this community grow, I’ve gotten a good feel for the types of goods and services that those who are moving in are looking for, and the Globe and Times offer access to a wide array of those. We have the background, the skills and the insights to help you reach potential customers.”
Over the years, Sherwood has been involved in a host of community service projects, from collection drives for the Marysville Community Food Bank to this year’s recent volunteer work on the Doleshel Tree Farm Park. He counts city of Marysville Parks & Recreation Director Jim Ballew and Parks Maintenance Manager Mike Robinson among his friends, and his work with local youths has included coaching baseball.
“I’d encourage everyone to get actively involved in their community, to buy local whenever possible, and to enjoy all that their cities have to offer,” Sherwood said. “I have years of experience and creativity to offer in sales, to assist our clients in designing ads, and in coming up with the layout and the language that personalizes their message, and makes sure it’s understood.”
