Lori Collier Waran
Media Sales Manager (Richmond + Williamsburg)
Lori Collier Waran is a proud Richmonder who she started her career in Washington D.C at Spirit Cruises, LLC, Sodexho Marriot. After spending 8 years inside the beltway, she moved with her husband and sons back home to Richmond, VA in 2003. Lori started her job in media with Auto Trader Magazines in 2003. She was thrilled when Landmark Media recruited her to launch a direct mail magazine with a 200,000 circulation in 2005. After jumpstarting that magazine, Landmark again asked Lori to expand her role to an alternative newsweekly, Style Weekly in 2006. She started as Sales Manager, but within a year grew her role to General Manager and Publisher of the tenacious news media company in Richmond.
Thrilled to be a part of Tribune Publishing, Lori now oversees the Virginia Gazette, Tidewater Review sales teams and continues her role as Publisher of Style Weekly.
She was born and raised in Hanover County and now resides in Ashland with her husband and two sons.
