Not here is, because Sue herself is speaking ('How are things with you?' she says).
Introducing myself I say, 'this is Mr Micawber' (on the phone or in the media) or 'I am Mr Micawber' (in a personal introduction).
In introducing other people, though, I can say (on the phone or in the media) 'Here is Mr Blair'.
