GLM names Kevin O'Keefe senior VP
Kevin O'Keefe has been named senior vice president at GLM. The industry trade show veteran will assume the role currently held by Phil Robinson, who will leave GLM after 22 years, August 1.
In his new position, O'Keefe will oversee three GLM shows, International Contemporary Furniture Fair, National Stationery Show, and Surtex, and the company's management of the Greeting Card Association, while also working on new product development. Prior to joining GLM, O'Keefe was senior vice president of events at UBM Canon Communications. He will report to Charles G. McCurdy, chairman and CEO, GLM; Robinson will also serve as an adviser to GLM throughout the end of the year.
"Kevin's deep experience in show management, his implementation of Canon's highly successful expansion strategy and his long track record in launching new shows and products make him a valuable addition to our senior management team," said McCurdy in a statement. "He will build on the work already done by Phil and others on new products and shows, including Space New York, which will be co-located with the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in May 2013."
