MacKay New Operations Director for NMSU Agricultural Communications

LAS CRUCES - Larry MacKay recently began work as assistant director for operations in New Mexico State University's agricultural communications department, where he directs the print shop, mail services, publications distribution, electronic duplication, product sales and Internet conferencing services.

"We are counting on Larry to establish well-organized business practices in his unit and to bring focus to our marketing efforts," said Terry Canup, head of NMSU's agricultural communications department.

A 1985 graduate of Hardin Simmons University, MacKay has held several sales and management positions that include experience with printing equipment. He was a sales representative for Marklyn/Smith-Thompson from 1990 to 1998. Before joining NMSU, he worked as a teacher and coach in the El Paso Independent School District.

"His experience in developing sales plans and his experience as a teacher should help us market educational products and services in a way that we haven't seen up to now," Canup said.
