    Spencer T. King was appointed in October, 2003 as President and CEO of International Executive Services Corps (IESC) a renowned NGO/international business development advisory firm founded by President Johnson, David Rockefeller and Sol Linowitz nearly 60 years ago. He served in this capacity until September 2010. As of January 2003, Mr. King served as Sr. Vice President, Worldwide Business Development for IESC, which included various global manufacturing initiatives for international clients.


    Mr. King was a co-founder and Chairman for the U.S. Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA). This entity consisted of sixteen members with an aggregate of more than 70,000 volunteers. Mr. King received VEGA’s first award for excellence. He subsequently served on the IESC Board of Directors and as Senior Advisor to IESC.


    Mr. King also served for four years as an appointed member of the Advisory Committee on Voluntary Foreign Aid (an entity that had evolved from the original Federal Relief Act to become ACVFA).


    Mr. King was with IESC since 1992, when he joined as export promotion executive for IESC’s program in Jordan. He later became General Manager of that program. In 1994 he became IESC’s general manager of the Technology Initiative for the Private Sector (TIPS) program in Sri Lanka. An independent evaluation of TIPS determined that it was one of USAID’s most successful programs worldwide. It created employment, increased the international competitiveness of Sri Lankan companies and generated exports for both the U.S. and Sri Lanka. While in Sri Lanka, he served three terms as president of the American Chamber of Commerce there and was a volunteer director for both it and the Fulbright Commission. After five years as head of the TIPS program, he was promoted to Egypt in 1999 as Chief of Party and added the duties of Regional Program Director for Asia/Near East in late 1999. In 2001, he became Vice President for Asia and the Near East and continued as Chief of Party for the Center for Business Support (CBS) in Cairo, Egypt, one of IESC’s largest programs. During his term in Egypt, Mr. King was named to the Board of Governors for the Egyptian American Chamber of Commerce.


    Before joining IESC, Mr. King owned and operated International trading companies with offices in Central America, California and Massachusetts. He was selected Chief of Party for the Market Technology Access Program (MTAP was funded by USAID). He served as consultant to the Costa Rica Minister of Trade, Mrs. Muni Figueres, who later became Ambassador to the USA. He also was on the Board of Directors of AMCHAM of Costa Rica and Chairman of the International Trade Committee.


    He earned a law degree at Tulane University and worked in private practice and on behalf of the State of New Mexico’s Consumer Fraud and Securities Commissions. He was selected as Assistant Attorney General for New Mexico in January 1968. He acted as legal counsel for the N.M. State Police, Banking Corp, Securities Commissioner and presented cases to the N.M. Supreme Court. Mr. King practiced privately in Albuquerque. He is the author of articles on trade, investment, competitiveness and intellectual property rights.


    Mr. King retired from IESC in September 2010 and has been a Senior Consultant to companies in Costa Rica and the USA and Senior Adviser to various government officials.



    Moshe Barkat was Founder and CEO of Modern VideoFilm, Inc. For more than 30 years, Moshe propelled his company to the pinnacle of post-production in Hollywood. Moshe and his company have touched virtually every major and mid-tier studio, producer, director and related technology company in the film capital of the world. When the company began in 1980, the competitive landscape included over 50 companies providing essentially the same services to the entertainment industry in Hollywood. Thirty years later there were less than 10 remaining companies of any significance due to buy-outs, “roll-ups” and/or shutterings, and most of the remaining players either had a bankruptcy in their history or had managed to stay afloat with one profitable line of business – a film processing laboratory – something which Modern VideoFilm never experienced. With the advent of digital cameras and e-cinema, those remaining companies struggled dramatically to stay afloat as was most recently demonstrated by Technicolor announcing that it was closing its major facilities in Burbank and London, and Todd-Soundelux dissolving its operations. During the 30 years under Mr. Barkat’s management, Modern VideoFilm delivered consistent positive financial results in a highly competitive, capital-intensive environment, outlasting most of its peers. The company endured vast technological changes, paradigm shifts, industry strikes, innumerable regime changes at the studios, a Tsunami in Japan that wiped out an entire product-line, and general economic fluctuations. Yet Mr. Barkat and his company managed to provide its services to every major and mini-major studio in town. For the past five years Mr. Barkat’s main focus was in creating and positioning the company’s content management services, focusing on yet the latest trend in file based production and distribution. This effort led to a unique arrangement he reached with Apple, Inc. whereby Apple ultimately outsourced most of its QC department to his company after designing and implementing a cutting-edge solution to screen every single title prior to inclusion in Apple’s iTunes platform. Among the projects that the company helped create were household names like Friends, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, Everybody Loves Raymond, Home Improvement, Desperate Housewives, Modern Family, and many other top rated TV shows, as well as feature films like Avatar, I Robot, Epic, Rio 2, Grand Hotel Budapest, Whiplash and many more. Most importantly, Mr. Barkat developed an impeccable sense for delivering quality client interventions. His “A-List” clients from the 1980s are still some of the largest customers at Modern VideoFilm today. After 30 years of working with studio executives, talent, bankers and other major ‘players’ in Hollywood and in the technology community as a whole, Mr. Barkat has maintained strong relationships that have proven to be long lasting -- based on trust and respect.


    Some of Mr. Barkat’s accomplishments as CEO of the Modern VideoFilm include:

    • An engineer by education and training, in 1980 he introduced the first Flying Spot scanner which was used to revolutionize the transition of film-originated material for subsequent use in the then-burgeoning home entertainment (videotape) industry.
    • In the early 1980s, he anticipated the transition from analog video to digital technology. The company was at the forefront of that transition, introducing Sony’s D-1 digital recording capabilities to the industry.
    • In the early 1990s, he anticipated the transition to HDTV and positioned the company to capitalize on what was initially an optional, luxury service to what would become the new industry standard. The company became a leader in the push to full HD by the industry.
    • By the year 2000, ‘Digital Intermediate’ capabilities revolutionized the way that feature films were produced. Again, through insight and anticipation, he led the way in this effort, culminating with the cutting-edge services provided to the highest grossing film of all time, “Avatar.” All of the essential services were provided for the final color correction and assembly of the film (thereby creating the “look” and “feel” of the movie) often credited as being instrumental to that film’s success.
    • He oversaw several financings, amendments and refinancing transactions working closely with the investment bankers, attorneys and accountants throughout those transactions.
