NRB Presidential Search Committee Members Appointed

Presidential SearchNRB Board Chairman Rich Bott has appointed a committee comprising members of NRB’s Board of Directors and Executive Committee to begin the search for the association’s next president.

Bott, who is President/CEO of the Bott Radio Network, will chair the Presidential Search Committee. Other committee members include: Bill Blount (Blount Communications); Peggy Campbell (Ambassador Advertising Agency); Roger Kemp (Roger Kemp and Company); Michael Little (The Christian Broadcasting Network); and Tom McCabe (Pursuant KMA).

According to Chairman Bott, “The Presidential Search Committee is excited about its work, recognizing the significance of the task.”

“The need for an effective and influential NRB has never been greater,” he added. “Fully confident that the Lord will provide, we are looking forward to discovering who God has chosen as the next President & CEO of the NRB.”

Last month, NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright, who has led the association for the past 10 years, announced his intention to step down this coming October.

After a decade of faithful service and distinguished leadership at the helm of NRB, Dr. Wright shared in a March 18 letter to Chairman Bott that he “prayerfully concluded that my season of service at NRB is drawing to a close.”
