Deanna Meadows-Shrum

Director of Marketing and Communications


Deanna joined Hershey’s administrative team in the spring of 2019. A graduate of Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, she received her Bachelor of Arts in Communication with emphasis in Public Relations. Deanna has more than 20 years of experience in related fields of marketing and communication. Her career has taken her from farmlands in the heart of Ohio to the United Nations in New York City. She has built marketing and communication programs for both large and small organizations by tapping her unique passion to “grow things that matter.”

Her most important and revered role is being “mom” to her three children. Helping them grow brings her great joy and reward.  In her downtime, Deanna seeks the outdoors, relishing time on her bike, kayak, sitting around a fire, and being barefoot in the grass.
