SongDivision's Sam McNeill - PCMA 20 in their Twenties!

Congratulations to our very own Sam McNeill for being selected in the inaugural '20 in their Twenties' class. (That's him being kissed by Sir Richard Branson...yes, he's that good.)

"Too often great leadership isn't recognized until the latter portion of careers. Twenty in their twenties allowed PCMA to engage and acknowledge a talented group of young professionals for their skills and provide incentive for them to lead our industry into the future," said Deborah Sexton, President & CEO, PCMA.

As part of the honor, Sam will be heading all the way from our Sydney office to Boston this January for PCMA's Convening Leaders where he'll be joined by the fabulous Nathan Horne from our NYC office. Nathan is a shoe-in for the yet to be announced '30 in their Thirties' class :) Both gents can't wait to say hello to all of you attending in Boston.
