As if she isn’t already crazy busy overseeing the Lucasfilm division of the Disney empire, but now Kathleen Kennedy has been elected the Chair of the AFI Board of Trustees, succeeding Howard Stringer who has served as chair for the past 20 years.
The producer and Lucasfilm president succeeds Howard Stringer, who has served as chair since 1999. Robert A. Daly will remain as chair of the AFI Board of Directors, a position he has held since 2009.
“It is a distinct honor to be elected as chair of the AFI Board of Trustees,” Kennedy said Thursday in a statement. “AFI’s commitment to the power of storytelling — coupled with its profound respect for the past — is an inspiration in our modern day, and I look forward to working with the Trustees and the incomparable Bob Daly with the goal to shine an even greater light upon the impact these stories have in our nation and around the world,” she added.
Congratulations to Kathleen, from all her fellow Fantha Trackers.
