Leading pay-TV and digital media industry Association CASBAA today announced the winner of the prestigious annual CASBAA Chairman’s Award for the 'outstanding contribution to the Asia Pacific multi-channel pay-TV industry over the past 12 months'.
The CASBAA Chairman’s Award 2016 went to Marcel Fenez, President of industry advisory group Fenez Media and previously Global Leader of PwC’s Entertainment & Media Practice.
“But, of course, this year our Chairman’s Award is for much more than Marcel’s performance during the past 12 months,” said CASBAA Chairman Sompan Charumilinda. “Marcel Fenez has steadfastly served our industry for more than half of the Association’s 25-year history as a Board Director for 16 years including 14 years as Chairman.”
The CASBAA Chairman’s Award 2016 was presented to Marcel Fenez by Sompan Charumilinda, the Chairman of CASBAA, on the final day of the CASBAA Convention 2016 in Macau.
The formal citation for the CASBAA Chairman’s Award 2016 reads: “In recognition of Marcel Fenez’s unparalleled professionalism, integrity and enthusiasm in promoting the growth of our industry and his years as Chairman of the Association (2001-2015).”
“Beyond that,” said Mr. Charumilinda, “Marcel’s contributions to CASBAA in terms of strategy, governance and finance have steered our organization through many structural changes as well as the dramatic evolution of our industry.
“As a Board Member he has helped enormously to create the credible industry voice that we are today. He is also greatly respected by his peers, by government officials and by a client base drawn from around the world.”
Mr. Fenez said, “I am greatly honoured to receive this award. But I would like to share this honour with a long list of current and former CASBAA Directors and Executives as an endorsement of the many achievements that CASBAA has been involved over the years”
