Just-appointed AIR AMERICA CEO BENNETT ZIER (NET NEWS, 7/1) will continue to hold his duties as Managing Partner and owner of strategic management and marketing consulting firm UMANSKYWYATTZIER. UMANSKYWYATTZIER began working with AIR AMERICA MEDIA in APRIL of this year as consultants to help them grow their business under the new leadership of Board Chairman CHARLIE KIREKER.
"As a result of working with Air AMERICA as a client, a leadership role began taking shape that CHARLIE believed I can fill to grow AIR AMERICA more quickly into a nationally successful multi-media company," BENNETT said. "The opportunity to become CEO of the new AIR AMERICA, while still contributing to the growth of UWZ will enable me to maximize my impact on the issues and industries that align with my past experiences.”
"I told BENNETT that from my experience and given his networks, expertise and energy level, he can continue to add value at UWZ, even as he concentrates on his new responsibilities," KIREKER said. "With the ongoing involvement of UWZ CONSULTING as trusted advisors to AIR AMERICA on its business plan and programming, we can build on the tremendous job they have performed already in helping us gear up for the next phase of company building."
