SEGURA TAPPED TO
RUN MUSICARES

The Recording Academy has tapped Laura Segura to run MusiCares in the newly created job of Executive Director. Segura moves over from her job as Vice President of Membership & Industry Relations.

Segura will oversee an annual budget of $17m, and a staff that encompasses development, fund-raising and delivery of health and financial aid programs. The change is immediate.

"Laura's incredible work here over the past seven years has proven her to be an invaluable member of the Academy's team,” said Academy Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. “We look forward to the great things we know she will accomplish with us in her new role."

As VP of Membership & Industry Relations, Segura spearheaded the restructuring of the organization's 12-chapter system, and increased outreach and industry relations efforts. Segura, who led the nearly 60-person Membership department, also brings significant fund-raising and development experience to the position.

"Laura's energy, drive, and depth of industry knowledge gained from working with 21,000 Recording Academy members across the country is central to shaping the future of MusiCares,” said Steve Boom, Chair of MusiCares Board of Directors. “As musicians and industry members now face unprecedented hardships, there is nobody better suited to focus on augmenting current emergency services, and enhance permanent programs providing much-needed relief."
