The Association of Commercial Television in Europe (ACT) has appointed Agnieszka Horak as its new Director of Legal and Public Affairs.
Horak succeeds Emilie Anthonis who has accepted another position in Brussels. She brings extensive direct experience of the policy issues facing commercial broadcasters.
Horak 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. She is a graduate of Pathéon-Sorbonne University (Paris 1), INSEEC business school (Paris) and the College of Europe (Warsaw).
The Board of ACT thanked Emilie Anthonis for her dedication and exceptional contribution to representing and promoting the interests of commercial television over the last 5½ years, and wished her every continued success in her future endeavours.
“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,” said Grégoire Polad, director general of the Association.
