Americas' Member Council

Americas' Member  Council

Driving region-specific events and opportunities aimed at specific industry gaps to further benefit participating members.

“I would like to say thank you to the IABM and Americas committee members for allowing me to serve as their committee chair,” Said Paul Stechly. “Applied Electronics is a 60-year-old broadcast and media integration company owned throughout within the same family. As the company president, with 35 years in the industry, I have had the privilege of maintaining business relationships with a large spectrum of the IABM membership. In a time of rapidly changing technology and consolidation on the client side of the media industry, the challenges are significant. My hope is to harness the collective expertise of the committee to initiate and complete meaningful initiatives that will benefit the IABM membership.”
