WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.-Christian Falkenberg, vice president of GLM, has been named director of the New York International Gift Fair.
The move gives Falkenberg complete oversight over NYIGF, including strategic development, brand positioning, sales, audience marketing, public relations and operations. He reports directly to Charles McCurdy, GLM’s CEO, and succeeds Dorothy Belshaw, who left GLM earlier this month to become president of the gift division of International Market Centers.
Falkenberg joined GLM in 1992. During his tenure, he has held sales and management positions with the International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show, Las Vegas International Hotel & Restaurant Show, AH&MA Lodging Expo and the Air & Waste Management Association Conference and Expo. He was promoted to vice president in 2003, and became show manager of NYIGF in 2008.
