The Daily Times and Community Common are happy to announce a new employee, Mike Bell.
Hope Comer, publisher of the newspapers, welcomed Bell to the advertising team as a Media Sales Consultant on Aug. 31, 2016.
“Through his years of service at Daymar College and commitment to the Autism project, Mike built many relationships in our community,” Comer said. “Now, he is providing excellent service to our local businesses helping them grow through print and online campaigns.”
Bell graduated from Green High School. Afterward he joined the United States Army where he served for three years. After being discharged due to a leg injury, Bell continued his education at Daymar College and earned an Associates Degree in Business.
Bell credits his success and work ethic to his military experience.
“I always tell people, it takes you and changes you from a boy to a man. It gives you a good work ethic, establishes discipline and helps to shape you for the future that you want to see,” Bell said.
Outside of work, Bell is a dedicated husband and father to his two children, Kristen and Aaron. Bell’s son Aaron has autism and his diagnosis deeply impacted Bell to become an advocate and activist for autism.
Bell serves as president of the Autism Project of Southern Ohio and vice president for the District 11 Challenger League baseball team. He also assists with the New Boston Challenger League basketball team and is a member of the Just for Fun Bowling League. These groups allow those with disabilities to participate in sports teams and activities. In addition, Bell is a lifetime member of the Disabled American Veterans organization and AmVets.
Bell has enjoyed working at the Daily Times and says he looks forward to developing relationships with his customers and the community.
“I just love working with people. My main objective is to assist the customers that we have and create ads and campaigns that will help them with their business,” Bell said. “I want to get the word out about them and see that they’ve got a future. At the end of the day here, that’s what it’s all about, helping our customers.”
