DSF Names MGM’s Dearborn As New Chairman; Adds To Board
January 22, 2016 by Dave Haynes
Randy Dearborn, who runs MGM Resorts International’s many different digital sign installs, is the 2016 Chairman and Ken Goldberg, CEO of Real Digital Media, has been sent to the sunny porch out back where they put past chairmans.
Rich Ventura of NEC Display Solutions is now Vice-Chairman and heir to the throne, and Spencer Graham from West Virginia University is Treasurer/Secretary.
The eight At-Large Board Director seats, which include three reinstated members, were decided, says the DSF, in an independent election.
The three back for more …
- Brian McClimans, Peerless AV
- Steve Hargis, Bass Pro Shops
- Mark Boidman, Peter J. Solomon
New folks …
- Paul Fleuranges, New York Transit
- Sandi Stambaugh, Synnex Corporation
- Ryan Cahoy, Rise Vision
- Oliver Vagner, TGI Fridays
- Sheldon Silverman, SmartBomb Media Group
The press release is kinda fuzzy on this, but I believe there are some others still on the board, for year two of two-year terms, like Manny Almagro from TPN. Their pix and details are still on the board page.
The DSF says it now has some 650 individuals from 260 organizations in its membership, and the number is growing.
Ken Goldberg is no shrinking violet, but it will be particularly interesting to see what happens this year with the DSF guided by Randy, who is not even slightly shy to speak his mind. When the member organization started, the leadership was not exactly typified by stirrers of pots.
It’s also good to see end-users like Fleuranges from the New York mass transport system and Vagner (who I don’t know) from the hospitality business.
