Michael Ryan new AFM Chairman


The 2004 Board of Directors for AFMA was elected at the organization's annual membership meeting, it was announced today by AFMA President & CEO, Jean Prewitt.

Michael Ryan of IAC Films & Television in London was confirmed as Chairman (replacing replacing Kathy Morgan). Ryan, who ran unopposed, becomes the first person from outside the U.S. to hold the office. "I am very honored to have been selected Chairman of AFMA and feel that it is very much in the international spirit of our association. AFMA provides a fantastic service to its members. I intend to work very hard to develop this service even more as well as to increase the political presence of the Association worldwide."

Ryan’s election and that of other senior executives from around the world reflects the diversity of the AFMA Membership. With eight board members from companies headquartered outside the U.S., the newly elected AFMA board is the most "international" ever.
