NAB selects beer association president Rehr as next leader

National Beer Wholesalers Association President David Rehr has been selected the new president and chief executive officer of the National Association of Broadcasters.

Rehr, 46, was signed to a multi-year agreement and will assume the NAB leadership post on Dec. 5. His selection comes after a high-level executive search process was launched in February after current NAB President and CEO Eddie Fritts announced plans to step down. Fritts will remain a consultant to NAB through April 2008.

Some 80 potential candidates were considered in the search for Fritts' successor. Rehr's selection comes with the endorsement of an NAB Presidential Search Committee chaired by Philip Lombardo, CEO of Citadel Communications, and David Kennedy, president and CEO, Susquehanna Media.

Rehr has more than 20 years of experience on Capitol Hill and in the lobbying community.
