IABM has unveiled its new Board of Directors following a biennial election.

IABM, the international broadcast and media technology association, has announced the results of its biennial election of Board Directors. IABM is owned by its members, and the board is both made up of members and voted for by members.

The Board serves a two-year term and plays a central role in all the association’s activities: it is responsible for the overall strategy of IABM, and setting, reviewing and changing as necessary the policies of the association, which are then implemented by the IABM Team. The Members’ Board also exercises overall financial control.

IABM is one of six international bodies that owns IBC, including IBC365.

The membership of the new IABM Members’ Board reflects the international make up of IABM’s membership.

The newly elected members are:
Dr Jörg Pohlman – ARRI

Anne-Louise Buick – Avid

Nicolas Bourdon – EVS

Tim Shoulders – Grass Valley

David Phillips – Multicast Consultancy

Geir Bryn-Jensen – Nevion

Bea Alonso – Ooyala

Alison Pavitt – Pebble Beach

Peter Sykes – Sony

Juergen Sommer – Vitec Group

Andreas Hilmer - IABM Members' Board Chair 2019-2021

Andreas Hilmer - IABM Members’ Board Chair 2019-2021

The newly elected members join five continuing members (elected by the outgoing board for continuity), who are:
Andreas Hilmer – Lawo (Chair)

James Gilbert - Pixel Power (Immediate Past Chair)

Nicki Fisher – Clear-Com

Glodina Connan-Lostanlen – Imagine Communications

Anna Lockwood – Telstra

In addition, the chairs of the APAC, EMEA and Americas IABM Regional Members’ Councils – Dennis Breckenridge of Elevate Broadcast, Ole Clausen of Danmon Group and Paul Stechly of Applied Electronics respectively – also have seats on the Board. Vice Chair Graham Pitman, IABM CEO Peter White and Finance Director Lucinda Meek complete the line-up.

Newly elected Chair of the IABM Members’ Board, Andreas Hilmer from Lawo, said, “Our industry is facing challenges from various sides and is encouraged to think outside the box almost daily. Never before in my 16 years working for broadcast manufacturers have I seen such a burst of activity and creativity despite the disruptive changes facing manufacturers, service providers and broadcasters.

“Helping to steer our industry through these turbulent times will be the mission of this newly elected board and IABM’s wonderful in-house team. We will continue to maintain the right balance between vendors’ interests, who founded this organization, and the broadcast and media industry at large. Sustainable success is based on trusted partnerships; IABM plays a crucial role in this process to ensure that all stakeholders benefit from the vast opportunities that lie before us.”
