Journalist & Media Professional
20+ years in radio, newspapers, magazines, video and digital media
MOSES FRENCK is an experienced journalist and communications professional whose background spans more than 20 years in radio, newspapers, magazines, video and digital media.
His roles have ranged from radio news writer and announcer, daily newspaper reporter, magazine editor and video producer, to senior-level editorial, marketing, communications and general management at startups and established companies.
Most recently, Moses focused on issues surrounding civil rights, social justice, diversity & inclusion as managing editor of DiversityInc, the leading source of news and information on diversity management.
Managing a team producing outstanding daily national news, Moses directed all editorial coverage for the company’s digital and print publications, including free and premium websites, daily and weekly newsletters, magazines and events.
Moses was previously a writer and editor with Adweek, becoming the founding managing editor of Adweek’s Marketing y Medios magazine, the first monthly magazine to cover Hispanic advertising, marketing and media in the United States.
Following Adweek, as co-founder of MIO.TV — a digital video and social platform featuring original and syndicated content for the bilingual U.S. Latino market — Moses successfully led the company through three rounds of private equity and venture capital financing. Unfortunately, the company was a casualty of the 2008/2009 financial crisis and forced to shutter.
In late-2009, Moses took a break from media to pursue his passion in aviation and purchased a 20-year-old flight school. Leveraging his business and communications skills in advertising, content marketing and public relations, he successfully tripled the customer base, quadrupled sales revenue and grew the aircraft fleet from three to nine airplanes, while expanding into a full-service aviation business and aircraft maintenance center. After five years, and missing the exciting world of media, Moses accepted an offer to sell the business in 2014.
Over the years, Moses has served as a strategic consultant helping companies and investment firms navigate the changing communications, media and digital landscape. Moses has been an invited industry speaker and has been quoted by leading publications ranging from Advertising Age to Bloomberg Businessweek and The Washington Post.
As an award-winning writer and editor, Moses is credited with more than 3,500 articles published in daily newspapers, consumer and business magazines and trade media. Read some writing samples here.
