Publisher Betty Ramsey said she believed Holmberg would be a valuable member of the Bulletin’s marketing team.
“We are glad to have Nicholas as part of our marketing team. He brings with him an insider’s knowledge of the local horse community and many of the challenges they are facing today,” Ramsey said. “With his professionalism and enthusiasm he will be a great partner for our local advertisers.”
Holmberg graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in business administration, with a concentration entrepreneurship.
“My experience of attending WCU and working in the horse industry has prepared me very well for life,” Holmberg said. “I feel confident that I can contribute to a great company and have aspired to working in marketing for some time.”
Holmberg became involved in the horse industry seven years ago, working his way up from jump crew to announcer.
Holmberg also remained involved in soccer throughout his high school and college years. He said it was in college that he gained a genuine interest in learning thanks to Professor Dr. Bob Carton, who taught him the importance of understanding concepts instead of memorizing information. Holmberg said he believes that also inspired his interest in entrepreneurship.
“The idea of helping other businesses grow is an exciting idea,” Holmberg said. “Joining the Bulletin staff has been a tremendous opportunity for me, and I am so happy to learn in a great atmosphere with great people.”
