SHELTON, CT--(Marketwire - January 28, 2010) - Glenn Hansen, president and CEO of BPA Worldwide, on January 28th celebrated his 30-year anniversary with the global auditor of print, screen and live media.

"I've spent 30 years endeavoring to do what BPA does best--providing truth in an ever-challenging business environment," Hansen explained.

But as BPA's goal remains constant, the playing field is an ever-moving target. With Hansen's leadership, BPA has maintained its focus in the marketplace. "[Glenn] has shown he has the vision to innovate as the media industry evolves to ensure that BPA upholds its standards and remains relevant," said Gaye Sussman, ID Media President and current BPA Board Chairman.

Hansen joined BPA in January 1980 as an auditor in New York. He was promoted to Manager of Market Comparability Programs in August of 1982 and held a number of management positions until he was promoted to President/CEO of the global media auditor in August 1999.
