(Gloucestershire, UK--September 17, 2012) The IABM (International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers) today announced that it has conferred an honorary membership upon David MacGregor, a key figure in the organization's creation and growth over the past four decades. The honorary IABM membership recognizes his ongoing support of the IABM and its activities, as well as his exceptional personal contribution to the supply side of the broadcast media and technology industry.
"David is among those well-known figures who have shaped the broadcast industry as we now know it and continue — through the efforts of their own companies, their professional memberships, and their involvement with the IABM — to foster its innovation and growth," said IABM Director General Peter White. "We are extremely grateful for David's contributions to the supply side as a whole and for his tremendous commitment to the IABM over the years."
MacGregor has served on the IABM committee since the organization's inception in the 1970s and became a director with its incorporation back in 1998.
