MUMBAI: CASBAA presented its Lifetime Contribution Award 2010 to Peter Jackson during the CASBAA Charity Ball. The award was in recognition of 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 28 October, 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. 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," said CASBAA chairman Marcel Fenez.
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."
