The Association for Downloadable Media (ADM), established to focus on best practices for monetizing consumer-downloaded content, has announced the appointment of Phil Wilson to Director of the Association.
Phil brings a wealth of new media, established radio industry, and non-profit project organization skills that will be applied toward the Association's (http://www.downloadablemedia.org) ongoing and future projects. As Director, his role includes coordinating and supporting the Association's volunteer member chair activities.
Phil says, "I'm excited to be working with such a great group of forward thinkers. The ADM has made some great strides on behalf of its members yet there's still plenty to do. I look forward to assisting the board in serving the membership and the industry as a whole."
In addition to his background in broadcast programming and management, Phil's experience in interactive media provide him a unique understanding of the media consumer and buyer as well as a valuable skill set to draw from while confronting the issues facing the members of the ADM.
