The Academy of Country Music announced today that CEO Bob Romeo is stepping down after 12 years as the head of the organization.
“Working at the Academy has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career in the music business,” Romeo commented. “We’ve accomplished more than I could have ever dreamed — between our success celebrating the 50th anniversary in Texas and returning to our longtime home in Las Vegas, to the monies donated through ACM Lifting Lives — the organization is recognized as a leader in the business and that was my main goal when I joined the company. There is so much pride in how far we have moved the puck. That said, I’m looking forward to planning my next endeavor.”
“We are thankful for Bob’s leadership and dedication to the organization, and wish him the best in the next phase of his career,” said ACM Board Chairman Paul Barnabee.
EVP/Managing Director Tiffany Moon will serve as interim CEO.
“The officers are committed to working closely with Tiffany and the ACM staff to continue the outstanding work of the ACM and ACM Lifting Lives,” Barnabee added.
