A marketing and promotions executive has celebrated 30 years at Aberdeen Journals.
Karen Ogg said she had “loved every minute” of working with the company, which produces the Press and Journal and Evening Express.
Mrs Ogg, from Newmachar, is involved in some of the titles’ most popular competitions, such as the Little Leopard, and is a well-known face at roadshows at events such as the Braemar Gathering.
She said: “I have loved every minute of working at the company.
“I have made so many friendships and faced lots of different challenges.
“But I have to take this opportunity to thank my team, as whenever the going got tough, everyone got behind me.”
Mrs Ogg was presented with a bracelet during the presentation.
Neil Mackland, head of newspaper sales and marketing, thanked the 60-year-old for her valuable contribution.
He said: “Your dedication has really shined through over the last 30 years. You put absolutely everything into your work and are incredibly professional in every task you do.”
When asked for the highlight of her career so far, Mrs Ogg found it hard to pinpoint a single moment.
She said: “I believe in the titles. That’s what has made my job so easy and worthwhile all these years.”
She added that she thoroughly enjoyed getting out and about to promote the paper and meet readers attending the Highland games.
“I loved that – taking 2000 copies of the paper to a Highland Games and selling them all.”
