Joey Zachary has been named TBC Media’s sales and marketing director, Chief Executive Officer Michelle Chantry announced this week.

Zachary has been with TBC Media since February 2016, coming on board as sales manager. She has more than 16 years of experience in marketing and sales management.

“Joey is a strong manager and has great contacts in the community,” Chantry said. “I look forward to working with her to increase and strengthen our community partnerships. She has great energy and is a real asset to TBC.”

Zachary, born and raised in Bakersfield, attended Bakersfield High School and Bakersfield College.

She volunteers for the Wounded Heroes Fund and the Mick Asbury ALS Shootout and serves as fundraising committee chair for Women Of Wisdom, based at St. Francis of Assisi Church. She enjoys hiking, scuba diving and travel.

Zachary is the granddaughter of the late Bob Whittemore, a World War II veteran, 11-year city councilman and two-term vice mayor, and daughter of the late Alan Zachary, who retired as a lieutenant after 33 years with the Bakersfield Police Department.

“I am honored to accept this position and excited to continue to bring new and exciting digital media and print solutions to the business community of Kern County,” Zachary said.

“I attribute my work ethic and dedication to the examples set before me by my grandfather and father — and, of course, my biggest fan and greatest supporter, my mother Peggy Whittemore-Zachary,” she added. “The support and love of my family, friends and my faith is what motivates me to continue the path set before me.”

Zachary’s son Gavin, a graduate of Garces Memorial High School, attends Cuesta Community College and plays rugby for Cuesta/Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He will join the Marines in July 2017.
