TEWKESBURY, U.K.—The international trade association for broadcast and media technology suppliers, IABM, has announced the results of its biennial election of Board Directors, which expanded the number of elected member companies represented on the Board from 15 to 20.
The expansion of the Board Directors was made following the unanimous approval of a special resolution at IABM’s Annual General Meeting on 22nd July 2021 to “widen representation and better reflect the level of diversity in IABM’s membership: including for example representational diversity in size of company, regions in which our members are based, type of company and gender diversity.”
The Members’ Board serves a two-year term and plays a central role in the association’s activities.
“I extend a warm welcome to all our Board members, new and returning, and am very much looking forward to working with them to keep our Association vibrant, ever-more relevant and supportive of members’ needs,” said IABM CEO Peter White. “I am delighted that the members voted for expansion of their Board. Over the last few years, we have seen a massive transformation in the industry, with innovative, new businesses across a much wider spectrum of technologies and operations springing up alongside more established companies, which have themselves successfully embraced change. The new Members’ Board really reflects this diversity; I am excited and energized by the wide range of experience, new thinking and energy it will bring to all IABM’s activities.”
The newly elected member companies and their nominated representatives are:
ARRI – Peter Crithary, president (ARRI Rentals), vice president, marketing and market development (ARRI Americas)
