NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — The American Association of Independent Music, or A2IM to its friends, announced the members of their new executive committee, as well as a spate of internal promotions.
The Executive Committee of the A2IM Board is elected by the board and it is now composed of: Louis Posen, owner of Hopeless Records – Chairman; Glen Barros, COO of Concord Music Group – Treasurer; and Portia Sabin, Kill Rock Stars President – Secretary.
In-house promotions included Lisa Hresko, who was promoted from Senior Manager to Director, Member Services and International Relations and Marcus Assenmacher, who moved up from Senior Manager of Events to Director of Events.
“The A2IM membership is fortunate to have such a highly-qualified and participatory board and executive committee. They undergird our organization and are a seemingly bottomless resource for myself and the A2IM team.
