In his new role, Levine will build and execute digital strategies for the ACM's content across a variety of platforms; he will report directly to Whiteside.

Alabama native Montgomery will be responsible for supporting all initiatives and development of ACM membership, along with overseeing the Awards & Voting process. Previous stops for Montgomery include Opry Entertainment Group as Manager for the Artist & Label Relations team and three years on the strategic partnership team at CMA. She will report to Tommy Moore, VP, Artist & Industry Relations and Board & Governance.

“The Academy is thrilled to welcome Rory, Haley and David to the team,” said Whiteside, CEO of the ACM. “Each of these professionals brings with them valuable expertise and knowledge of the Country Music industry that we know will provide a fresh perspective to the ACM team, helping to propel us forward in our future endeavors.”
