Hong Kong: CASBAA proudly presented its Lifetime Contribution Award 2010 to Peter Jackson during the CASBAA Charity Ball on 28 October. The award was in recognition of Mr. Jackson’s long-time commitment to the development of Asia’s pay-TV and communications industries.
Before stepping down from the CASBAA Board of Directors at its Annual General Meeting on October 28th, Mr. Jackson, the Executive Chairman of AsiaSat, had served on the CASBAA Board for more than a dozen years and had been Treasurer since 2001.
“Almost since the inception of the Asian pay-TV industry in the early 1990s Peter Jackson has provided strong leadership, market insights and cultural sensitivity with an unfailing sense of humour,” said Marcel Fenez, Chairman of CASBAA.
“Peter’s support of the Association as a Member of the CASBAA Council of Governors, as a Board Member and as Treasurer has been incalculable. The CASBAA Board of Directors salutes Peter Jackson.”
Mr Jackson said: ”I am honoured to receive this award. But the honour is equally deserved by my many colleagues and industry friends who have so ceaselessly promoted the growth of our fast-moving industry. I have greatly enjoyed my time with CASBAA and I hope I can continue to contribute to the Association and to the industry as a whole. I am extremely privileged to have been part of a great team over the years.”
