DALLAS, Texas, Sept. 3, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- On Wednesday, August 20, the Lone Star Emmy Chapter announced Terry Markis as their new Executive Director. Markis has been with the organization as the Chapter Administrator since January 2005. She fills the position previously held by Misti Torres McCarty, the chapter's longtime Executive Director, who passed away in 2013.

A seasoned television and events professional, Markis worked for the Food Network and was the Director of Meetings with Medimedia, a medical marketing and publishing company in New York City. As Administrator, Markis produced the Lone Star Chapter's annual Emmy Award ceremony, managed the judging of award entries and developed Emmy Express, which streamlined the judging process by moving it online.
