WHEELING — Brian Clutter has been named operations director of The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register.

In his new role, Clutter will oversee all aspects of the newspapers’ advertising and production departments, according to Perry Nardo, general manager of the newspapers.

“Brian brings more than a quarter-century of newspaper experience to this post, and we look forward to the new initiatives and the energy that he will bring to each department,” said Nardo.

Clutter, a graduate of John Marshall High School and a 1990 graduate of West Virginia University’s Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism, began his career in Wheeling in 1991 as an advertising sales representative for the newspapers.

He also worked for the Observer-Reporter in Washington, Pa., and the Zanesville Times Recorder for a time in the mid-1990s.

In 1998, he returned to Wheeling to serve as special projects coordinator, the advertising department’s inside sales manager and classified advertising manager.

In 2006, Clutter was named publisher of the Green Tab, Wetzel Chronicle and the Tyler Star News.

“I am very excited to serve in this new role, and look forward to working with Advertising Director Pam Bennett to develop new marketing strategies, and working with Production Manager Doug Hartlieb in our state-of-the-art production facility,” said Clutter.

Clutter resides in McMechen. He has one daughter, Hadly, a 2017 graduate of the University of Kentucky.
