A veteran local marketing executive has jumped from The Sun to the rival Baltimore Banner to help the nonprofit news startup grow its advertising sales and events next year. Sharon Nevins started as the Banner’s chief revenue officer last week and will help expand its advertising and marketing staff beginning in January. She recently left her post as vice president for advertising at The Sun and is the latest in a stream of Sun journalists and editors to migrate to the online startup Banner, which launched five months ago as a nonprofit news source covering the city. Nevins said Monday that her advertising and marketing team at the Banner will focus on boosting online ad sales as well as plan and hold Banner-sponsored events in Greater Baltimore next year.
