ACM Launches CEO Search

ACM Logo Gold_blackThe Academy of Country Music’s Executive Search Committee has announced a search for its open CEO position. The search comes after the ACM’s former CEO Bob Romeo stepped down in May.

The CEO will be responsible for results related to the ACM’s two televised shows as well as relationships with networks. This person will also oversee ACM Lifting Lives and its related charitable endeavors, as well as the ACM’s operating structures and processes.

“Over its more than 50 years, the Academy of Country Music has built a strong legacy and deep relationships in country music,” says ACM Board President Ken Tucker. “Our CBS-televised awards shows are annual anchors for artists, fans and the industry, and our ACM Lifting Lives charitable endeavors give even more meaning to all we do. This is an exceptionally exciting time for a new leader to join us as we continue the Academy’s growth and further its mission.”

The ACM describes the ideal candidate as a process-driven, results-oriented leader, with experience in executive and/or senior management roles in the media/entertainment industry. The ideal candidate will have a background in event marketing and management, with experience establishing and executing long-term visions and strategic plans.

Applicants are encouraged to submit materials to [email protected] and direct inquiries to [email protected].
