"I am honored, delighted and humbled to be elected President of Actors' Equity Association," said Mr. Wyman. He fills the position vacated by Mark Zimmerman in December, 2009 and held temporarily by First Vice President Paige Price. Mr. Wyman's term of office will be through the conclusion of elections in 2012.

In outlining his goals, Mr. Wyman said, "An ancient curse says, 'May you live in interesting times,' and these are indeed interesting times. My priority will be to improve communication, both by clarifying and focusing the message and mission of Actors' Equity and by soliciting and listening to the concerns and ideas of members in all areas of the country." He continued, "I will dedicate myself to improving the lives and working conditions of our members, and to that service, I offer my experience, reputation and leadership."

Mr. Wyman brings to the post of President more than 20 years experience as a National Councillor and eight years as a Trustee for the Pension and Health Trust Funds. In addition, he has worked on nearly all of the contracts negotiated by the Union, and has served as the Deputy for all of the productions in which he appeared. His dedicated service to Equity includes serving on four Production Contract negotiation committees, as well as the National Public Policy, House Affairs, Strategic Alliance and Merger and the 2010 Executive Director Search committees.

An Equity member since 1974, Nick has worked on a variety of contracts, including Production (Broadway, national tour and bus and truck), Special Production, LORT, Off Broadway, ANTC, WCLO, and Staged Reading. He created the role of "Monsieur Firmin" in the original Broadway company of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and has more than a dozen other Broadway credits including. LES MISERABLES, SLY FOX, ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, MY FAIR LADY and TALE OF TWO CITIES. He has appeared in numerous Off Broadway productions as well as at such regional theatres as The Guthrie Theatre, Arena Stage, the Goodman Theatre, Hartford Stage, Asolo Repertory Theatre, Pittsburgh Public Theater and the Barter Theater..

Often tempering his dedicated stance on serious topics with a dose of humor, Wyman said in a nod to his predecessors, "Previous Equity Presidents have left me some very large shoes (and in the case of my immediate predecessor a fetching pair of slingback pumps) to fill. Fortunately I have big feet."
