Bob Reekie’s Legacy Continues

After more than two decades of dedicated service as the CEO of Media Associates International (MAI), John Maust is preparing to retire.

Media Associates International recently announced the posting for the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The new CEO will succeed current CEO John Maust when he retires in July 2024.

Andy Rogers, Chairman of MAI International Board of Directors, pays tributes to him with these words:

“As Board Chair for the International Board, and on behalf of the entire Board, I wish to thank John for his incredible work at MAI since he began serving in 1995, and most importantly, for his contributions as President since 1998, when he took over the post from MAI co-founder Bob Reekie. John is a man of authentic faith, a consummate servant leader, and a dear friend or mentor to all who know him. His steady leadership and active participation in the search will be invaluable as we go about the process of finding his successor to the role.”

The Board has been prayerfully considering all aspects and attributes of their next leader. Their hopes are to find someone who not only aligns with MAI’s mission to “satisfy global hunger for the written word,” but who has vision to build on all that God has done around the world through the MAI network, including the triennial LittWorld Conference.
