MFM names “People to Watch” in 2010


The Media Financial Management Association (MFM) and its BCCA subsidiary have announced the “People to Watch” in 2010 – people whose leadership will be instrumental in creating change within the media and financial industries over the next year. 

MFM’s People to Watch in 2010 are:

Jody Drewer, executive vice president and CFO of TV One,

Andre Fernandez, executive vice president of finance and strategy and CFO at Journal Communications,

Mitchell Goldstein, chief financial and administrative officer for Clear Channel Radio,

Jeremy Kagan, vice president of global account management within Sony Music Entertainment’s global digital business,

Neil Read, executive vice president, transactions and CFO, Media Technology Ventures, and

Larry Rubin, partner, Media and Entertainment Services Group, RubinBrown.

The honorees were selected from nominations submitted to the editorial board for MFM’s “The Financial Manager” (TFM) magazine and are recognized in the publication’s January-February 2010 issue, which is available online at MFM’s website.

“MFM’s ‘People to Watch in 2010’ honorees range from a newcomer to the media business who is transforming the largest radio broadcaster in the country, to a record company executive who’s helping to re-invigorate the music-industry value chain, to a financial whiz who is fine-tuning a media conglomerate’s newspaper business,” said MFM President and CEO Mary Collins. “However, what all of our 2010 winners have in common is that their contributions are often overlooked when industry recognition is handed out.”
