Jimmie Cole, Sales Manager

Jimmie Cole is a native of Louisiana and lived here most of his life. He comes to Cumulus with over 25 years of experience in sales and sales management, two of which were spent with Cumulus in Lake Charles following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. "It was a great time to be in Southwest Louisiana. We were able to watch the rebuilding of the community and our industry. I wouldn't want to have to live through it again but it was a great experience for all of us in media," said Jimmie. Most recently Jimmie was consulting sales manager for LUS Fiber in Lafayette, LA, one of the first and largest municipally owned high tech companies in the country.
