The Association of Commercial Television in Europe (ACT) has announced the appointment of Agnieszka Horak as its new Director of Legal and Public Affairs, succeeding Emilie Anthonis who has accepted another position in Brussels.
Horak brings extensive direct experience of the policy issues facing commercial broadcasters. She joins ACT from the Permanent Representation of Poland to the EU where she was responsible for culture, audio-visual policy and copyright. She previously worked at the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, the European Commission and in the private sector.
Grégoire Polad, Director General of the Association, said: “We are delighted Agnieszka has agreed to join the ACT team. Her expertise and background make her the ideal advocate for commercial television at a time of major policy reform for Europe’s media sector.”
