DES MOINES, IA--(Marketwired - October 29, 2015) - Beth Roy, chief client officer at CDS Global, has been named the 2015 inductee into the Media & Content Marketing Association (MCMA) Hall of Fame. This prestigious media industry recognition is a testament to Roy's experienced leadership and commitment to magazine publishing.

Her diverse specialties include customer relations, product development, integrated solutions, project management and call center leadership.

"To be recognized by the MCMA and my colleagues in the industry is humbling, and I am honored to join such an esteemed roster of friends, clients and leaders in the Hall of Fame," said Roy.

"I am extremely proud of Beth for being awarded this distinct honor in recognition of a lifetime of professional achievement," said Malcolm Netburn, chairman and CEO of CDS Global and 2013 MCMA Hall of Fame inductee. "Beth has studied, worked with and supported this industry for more than two decades, and she is an essential part of the CDS Global leadership team. Her abilities to anticipate client needs, forge strong relationships and transform her industry knowledge into action have created a legacy of success and innovation that the media industry is lucky to experience."

In 2014, Roy completed the Yale Publishing Course, an immersive educational program for senior-level leaders in global publishing. Over the years, she has spoken at a variety of industry events for organizations that include MPA - The Association of Magazine Media, the Media & Content Marketing Association and the International Regional Magazine Association. Roy is a passionate community and industry leader, having served on several association and nonprofit boards.
