Betsy Greenway, longtime advertising director of Camden Media Co., has been named general manager of the company, according to publisher, Mike Mischner. “This well-deserved promotion, in actuality, formalizes a role Betsy has been functioning in for quite some time,” said Mischner.
In addition to her current considerable responsibilities with advertising sales and all company promotions, Greenway will now assist the publisher with operational duties within the publishing company.
“Betsy is one of the most seasoned, competent and professional newspaper executives in South Carolina and this company has indeed been fortunate to have her play such a huge role in its success for almost 35 years. Betsy has been instrumental in managing Camden Media’s growth … from one newspaper to a company now comprised of eight newspapers, one magazine and two digital publishing websites.
“Betsy is a proven, dynamic leader within Camden Media Co., but also served as a dynamic leader locally in such positions as president of the Chamber of Commerce, as well as also being a dynamic leader state-wide serving on media boards and committees for the SC Press Association,” Mischner further stated.
Greenway, a native of Oxford, N.C., joined the company with the Camden Independent in 1978, prior to its merger with The Camden Chronicle that formed, what is now, the Chronicle-Independent. She began as an advertising representative and as the company grew, her responsibility with it also grew. In rapid order she progressed from advertising manager to her previous title of advertising director to, now, general manager of Camden Media Co.
“I am very appreciative of the confidence that Mike Mischner has placed in me and I look forward to my additional role,” said Greenway.
Greenway, a member of Lyttleton St. United Methodist Church, is the mother of three married sons, Garland, Todd and Cameron Greenway, and grandmother of eight.
Camden Media Co. is a diversified media company in the Midlands of South Carolina. In addition to the Chronicle-Independent, Camden Media Co. publishes the West Wateree Chronicle, Lee County Observer, The Fort Jackson Leader, The Shaw News, The (Blythewood, S.C.) Country Chronicle, Lake Wateree News and The Connection for a total distribution in excess of 61,000.
