New year brings new things at the Bugle

Mary Hamel, the Bugle’s New Business Development Director

We are saying both goodbye and hello this month at the Bugle.

Clare Caffrey, who has worked as the advertising sales representative for the Bugle’s south of Como Avenue territory, is moving on to new projects. Clare joined the Bugle in January 2014. We thank her for her hard work and wish her well in her new endeavors. (We will miss you, Clare!)

And we welcome Mary Hamel, who will take over Clare’s advertising accounts and help the Bugle establish new advertising relationships in her new role as director of New Business Development.

Hamel has deep ties to the Twin Cities business community and to the St. Anthony Park neighborhood. She served as executive director of the MetroIBA (Independent Business Alliance) for eight years; served on the Saint Anthony Park Community Foundation, where she helped develop Park B4 Dark, the summertime business and community festivity in the Como and Carter avenue business district that takes place the third Thursday of June, July and August; volunteered with the St. Anthony Park Community Council, where she helped produce a neighborhood directory; and was fundraising chair and newsletter co-editor for the St. Anthony Park School Association (SAPSA) for several years.

Want to spark a new business relationship with us? Talk to Mary: or 651-387- 0738.
