Hong Kong Simon Twiston Davies, CEO of CASBAA, has been awarded the Annual CASBAA Chairman’s Award during the final day of the CASBAA Convention 2012. He is set to step down from his current role on December 31, and will be succeeded by a new management team led by in-coming CEO Christopher Slaughter.

“Under Twiston Davies’s management, CASBAA has become a central industry voice for the multichannel TV industry across 18 Asia Pacific markets running from Japan to Pakistan, China to Australasia, and beyond,” said CASBAA Chairman Marcel Fenez. “Most importantly, CASBAA has become the ‘Go To’ industry body in Asia if you are a serious multichannel TV player, or want to be one. That is Twiston Davies’s most notable contribution.”
