"You have to remind people that print is here," asserts the sales development director of Domino, the new shopping magazine from Conde Nast Publications.
In this mission, she's apparently succeeding.
Ms. O'Connell, 29, sold more ad pages in the first issue of Domino than any of her colleagues and will sell more Domino ad pages this year than anyone else, too. She had worked at Self, where she was promoted from the most junior position to handling the most senior account list within five months, and This Old House.
Beth Fuchs Brenner, Domino's VP-publisher, says Ms. O'Connell breathes the business. "There's no hour of the day she's not thinking of, corres- ponding with or meeting clients," the publisher says. "She was corres- ponding with us last night on the eve of her honeymoon."
