THE ACM GOES FISHIN'
1/9/17

It's official. Pete Fisher, who's served as the VP and General Manager of the Grand Ole Opry for the past 17 years, has a new gig—CEO of the Academy of Country Music. Following a relocation from Nashville to L.A., he'll hit the ground running on 1/30. Interestingly, Fisher's set to be only the second CEO in the ACM’s 53-year-history; Bob Romeo stepped down in May of 2016 with 13 years at the org under his belt.

“Pete has served the Academy of Country Music for 14 years as an active, engaged Board member and his skills as an innovative leader are proven,” said Ken Tucker, Chairman of the Academy’s Board of Directors. “Pete is a team builder, a champion of the importance of office culture and a person who believes strongly in discerning and following a strategic path alongside those around him. Through Pete’s successful leadership, the Opry became a place that recognized the importance of exposing legendary, contemporary and emerging artists equally.

“The Board thanks Tiffany Moon for her command through this interim search period as well as the staff for keeping the Academy on a forward trajectory,” Tucker continued. “We feel very lucky to have Pete’s leadership in the next phase of the Academy’s growth and presence on the world’s entertainment stage, heading into 2017.”
