Beckham, for the last three years TBS senior v.p., finance and administration, also gets corporate v.p. stripes as part of his promotion.

Booth, TBS v.p., finance, takes on additional duties in supervising the company’s accounting, biz affairs and management info services departments. He maintains his current responsibilities, including corporate finance, treasury and legal.
