Bailes, Davis join Daily Sun sales staff

Corsicana — The Daily Sun added two new members to its sales team recently, welcoming Terri Bailes and Kari Davis.

Both are Corsicana natives, who have traveled different paths to get to the Daily Sun. Both have jumped right into their roles, going through sales training sessions, working on the Best of the Best and GC Football ‘13 projects, and getting accustomed to their new work families.

“Terri and Kari both bring a level of professionalism to their roles, as well as a unique understanding of the community,” said Daily Sun Sales manager Karen Davis, no relation to Kari Davis. “Both have roots here, and both believe in the newspaper, Explore magazine and our digital products. They both want what is best for their customers, and that’s getting their businesses marketed properly.”

Bailes was born and raised in Corsicana, and was married after moving to Huntsville for college. In 1994, her family moved back to Corsicana. Her youngest child was born here.

“Everyone has made me feel welcome here,” Bailes said of her brief tenure. “I look forward to meeting people and developing new and ongoing relationships. I believe that building relationships and gaining their trust will be paramount in helping grow their business.  

“Since I am a Corsicana girl, and I have past generations of family here, I want to see the Daily Sun be as successful as possible.”

Bailes’ daughter Brittany is married to Matt Wood, and they have one daughter, 10-month-old Elizabeth, and live in Corsicana. Her daughter Aimee is married to Hector Cabrera, and they have two children, 2-year-old Brooklyn and 6-month-old Jared. They live in Houston. Her son Davis will be a junior at Corsicana High this fall.

Kari Baker Davis moved to Corsicana in January. Originally from here, she moved to Alabama, and after high school spent four years in California. She recently married Chad Davis and the couple has a 13-year-old daughter, Merissa Davis, and is expecting a son in November.

“My family is my everything and all of them are originally from Corsicana,” Davis said. “With the Daily Sun I would like to rise above and go beyond. I am doing my best right now just to learn as quickly as possible.

“I was surprised on how helpful and open everyone was to me asking so many questions.”

The Daily Sun employees do consider themselves family. In a sense, however, Bailes and Davis made the family a more trying situation.

Bailes became the second Terri on staff, joining Terri Anderson. Her maiden name is Davis, and along with Kari Davis and Karen Davis, it can get confusing.

“Assigning email addresses and getting phone calls to the right person became a little more tricky,” Publisher Raymond Linex II joked. “But we are thrilled to have both on board. We are glad they chose our family, and we think they have bright futures here.”
