Meet Gill Beasley, VP of Administration at MPS! When she’s not making sure all three offices run smoothly (seriously, she does everything), she’s spending time with family and friends, her church, and her BFF Siri. 😉
1. How did you get your start with MPS and how long have you been with the company?
After working with Brad in Tel Aviv, Israel, he invited me to meet his family in Dallas. I was excited to go to America plus I was a huge fan of the show Dallas. Brad’s bro Mark had already been operating as MPS since 1978 and then Brad became his partner in 1982. After we married I set up the business end of MPS while they continued to freelance in the business. I’ve really enjoyed growing with the company and all that MPS does to support the film community. I am grateful every day. Where have the 34 years gone? Just seems like yesterday that I got here!
2. When you’re not at MPS, where can we find you? i.e. How do you recharge?
Spending quality time with my family and friends also recharging with my Covenant Church family, a piece of heaven for sure.
3. What’s your favorite piece of equipment to work with?
My iPhone, it is my second brain, like my personal assistant.
4. If we were to hop onto your music playlist, what would we see you were listening to most recently?
I love listening to all music, even country. I especially love R&B and soul. I get my peace on while listening to my praise and worship playlist – Johnny Swim, Bethel Music, Lecrae, Calvin Norwell, Canton Jones, Mali Music, Covenant Worship and so many more.
5. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
“Beam me up Scottie!” – Transporting across the oceans in a split second so I could pop in on my family and friends around the globe for a quick cuppa, a cucumber sarney and a chin wag!
