The Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA) April 12 announced that Paul Yanover, president of Fandango, and Michele Edelman, EVP of marketing and content strategy for Vubiquity, will receive awards from the EMA Scholarship Foundation at the annual EMA Scholarship Foundation luncheon May 19 at the Universal Sheraton in Universal City, Calif.
Yanover’s award recognizes his leadership and contribution to the entertainment industry, where at Fandango he has created an integrated digital network that serves consumers throughout the movie life cycle, including Fandango’s premium on-demand video service, FandangoNow.

“Michele Edelman represents the best of the industry in her service to the broader community,” said Fisher. “She is an incredibly busy and accomplished professional, yet makes the time to contribute her knowledge and skills to advance the well-being of society.”
