INDIANAPOLIS (October 11, 2016) – Brian Annakin, vice president of post production at IMS Productions, will be honored as one of Indy’s Best and Brightest in the category of Media, Entertainment & Sports at the 13th annual Indy’s Best and Brightest event presented by KPMG LLP. An awards program and reception will take place on November 9, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. at the Hilbert Circle Theatre to recognize 100 of central Indiana’s outstanding young professionals, age 40 and under, in 10 different industries. “IMS Productions recognizes that without attracting, growing and retaining the industry’s best people we simply can’t do what we do. Our people are the difference at IMS Productions and we are proud to see Brian honored for his professionalism and the outstanding role he serves in our community,” said Robby Greene, president of IMS Productions.

Annakin began his career at IMS Productions in 2002 and was quickly promoted to senior producer and director of production and client solutions. By 2010, his leadership qualities earned him to the role of vice president of production, a position in which he manages a team of nearly 20 to bring multimedia visions to life and supply remote broadcasts for various clients, including: Butterball, HSN, the NFL Scouting Combine, PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Built Ford Tough Series, Red Bull Global RallyCross, the U. S. Olympic Committee and Verizon IndyCar Series to name a few. The Best and Brightest event was created by Junior Achievement to recognize up-and-coming talent and the next generation of leaders in our community. Finalists in each category are judged on professional accomplishments, civic contributions, character, and leadership qualities. The finalists who will be honored at the event are listed at www.indysbestandbrightest.org.
