Audio Engineering Society (AES) president Agnieszka Roginska has announced that Glenn Lorbecki has agreed to serve as the organization’s treasurer, effective February 16, replacing Richard Wollrich, who has resigned as AES treasurer.
“Glenn has steadfastly served the AES on our Financial Planning Committee for several years,” says Roginska. “His service has been exemplary and is evidenced by numerous refinements in the AES’s financial workflow and reporting. He assumes the role of treasurer with an intimate knowledge of the society’s finances and we are delighted that he has once again stepped forward to share his expertise.”
Lorbecki joined the AES in 1988 and has served as a member of the Financial Planning Committee since 2015, most recently as chair of the FPC. His expertise in fiscal management stems from 20-plus years of business experience as president of the recording/video post-production company Glenn Sound, and his service since 1999 to the Recording Academy as PNW Chapter president, as a member of TV and Technology Committees, as co-chair (with Bob Ludwig) of the Producers and Engineers Wing, and as national secretary/treasurer for four years.
Further, as chair of the Recording Academy Finance Committee, he led oversight of the GRAMMY parent company from budgeting to audits, business development, compensation, legal issues, growth planning, real estate acquisition, charitable giving, and the sustained growth of their endowment fund.
The AES board of directors voted unanimously to approve Lorbecki’s appointment. He will serve as treasurer through the 2020 election and one-year term of office of a treasurer-elect.
A producer, engineer, composer, musician, studio owner and educator, Lorbecki established his career with artists such as the Violent Femmes, Dizzy Gillespie, Dr. John, the White Stripes, Dave Matthews, Regina Spektor, Green Day, Weezer and Coldplay. Collaborations with MTV, Clear Channel, CBS, PBS, ABC, and others have yielded numerous features, live-in-the-studio recordings, film scores and game soundtracks. He is part of the EMMY and TEC award-winning GRAMMY telecast audio team on CBS, and his work is on permanent exhibit at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles.
