The American Association of Independent Music (A2IM) has announced the new executive committee of its board as well as promotions within the organization’s team. The committee is elected by the board and comprises: Louis Posen, owner of Hopeless Records as chairman; Glen Barros, COO of Concord Music Group as treasurer; and Portia Sabin, president of Kill Rock Stars as secretary.
Also, Lisa Hresko has been promoted from senior manager to director of member services and international relations, and Marcus Assenmacher, who moves from senior manager to director of events.
“The A2IM membership is fortunate to have such a highly-qualified and participatory board and executive committee. They bolster our organization and are a seemingly bottomless resource for myself and the A2IM team. Of course, nothing would happen without our relentlessly resourceful team and am thrilled to see both Lisa and Marcus earn well-deserved promotions,” said Richard James Burgess, CEO, A2IM.
The organization also hosts the annual Libera Awards.
