After 25 years with Beasley Media Group, Vice President of Corporate Communications Denyse Mesnik has announced her intention to transition to a consulting role for the company.
She will remain active in Beasley’s corporate office through the end of September, after which she will assist with special projects. At this time, Soni Dimond will take over Mesnik’s responsibilities, however, Mesnik cautioned in an email that “this is by no means a retirement announcement, so I’ll see you at the Radio Show in Atlanta.”
“Denyse has been one of the most loyal and capable persons with whom I have had the pleasure of working during the past 25 years,” said George Beasley. “We could always depend on her competency, uplifting smile and her willingness to complete any project given, without a complaint.” He also recently presented the CEO Award of Excellence to Mesnik.
Mesnik began her career with Beasley Broadcast Group in 1990 as executive assistant to founder, Chairman and CEO George G. Beasley. When the company became publicly traded in 2000, she was promoted to director of corporate communications and served as the Beasley’s first communications executive. She was again promoted to her current role in 2010.
Under Mesnik’s guidance, Beasley’s corporate communications office has grown into a department that handles external and internal messaging and relationships — including media, industry, employee and community relations — for the company’s 52 radio stations and 800+ employees in 12 markets.
“George Beasley and the Beasley family have enabled me to grow and succeed in an industry that I truly enjoy,” said Mesnik. “A piece of my heart will always be in the Beasley Media Group corporate office. The radio industry remains in my blood and in my future, and I am beyond honored that I can stay connected to the Beasley Family and Beasley Media Group as a consultant.”
