Succession Planning at 1517 Media

November 3rd, 2016 by Beth A. Lewis

Earlier today, 1517 Media Board of Trustees Chair Mark Brokering and I met with the entire staff of this ministry and business of publishing to make an announcement that is important in the life of this organization.

We announced that I have decided to step down from my current role as President and CEO when my current contract ends 22 months from now, on August 31, 2018. And, Mr. Brokering shared with the staff the succession planning and interview process that has been conducted by the Board of Trustees leading to the selection of Tim Blevins, currently Senior Vice President and Publisher for 1517 Media as the President & CEO-elect effective September 1, 2018.

Here is the press release sent out late today:
