Yes it does. Furthermore, I would hyphenate "award-winning". –  Ste Aug 22 '13 at 14:11
    
And furthermore, none of the descriptors ("Producer", etc.) requires a capital letter. –  TrevorD Aug 22 '13 at 14:13

Writing advice is off topic here, but I see I'm closing the doors after the horse has bolted. –  MετάEd Aug 22 '13 at 17:57

Yes, it does. The words from ‘As’ to Editor’ are a separate grammatical unit, and a comma would make this clear. Apart from anything else, ‘Editor I’ looks as though there may be an Editor II and an Editor III.
