Charlie Anderson, President/CEO of Anderson Merchandisers and former Chairman of the CMA Board of Directors, has been tapped to lead the committee responsible for defining the role of CMA executive director, and hiring a national search firm to fill the vacancy. Former CMA head Tammy Genovese resigned from the company on Dec. 2.
The committee will convene and the search will begin in January, according to Randy Goodman, Chairman of CMA’s Board of Directors. The search committee consists of current members of the CMA Board of Directors who have served as Chairman.
The collective experience of the group dates back to 1975. The group is charged with defining the duties and establishing the necessary qualifications for potential applicants. The committee is also charged with hiring a national search firm to identify and vet qualified applicants. A process for submitting applications will be announced at a later date. At this time, no applications are being accepted. Search firms should contact Anderson at [email protected].
