RECORDING ACADEMY REORGANIZES

The Recording Academy has created two senior leadership positions, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Industry Officer, and streamlined most of the staff into three divisions:  Entertainment/Consumer Division; Trade/Industry; and Organization/Cross Verticals.

Branden Chapman, who heads the Academy's production department and oversaw the  telecast properties, is the new Chief Operating Officer. Ruby Marchand, who joins the organization as its new Chief Industry Officer. Additionally, Rex Supa has been promoted to Vice President of Production & Business Development and will report to Chapman.  

"One of my goals as the interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy is to evolve our organization and structure to be more efficient and responsive. These changes set a foundation for success as we prepare for the dynamic future of our industry," said Harvey Mason Jr., Recording Academy Interim President/CEO. "This new structure further accelerates our broader transformation, strengthens our high-performance culture and enables our teams to better serve members." Chapman and Marchand will both report to Mason, as will the Academy's CFO, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Chief People & Culture Officer, Chief Advocacy Officer, and the Executive Director of MusiCares.

As COO, Chapman will lead the Entertainment/Consumer Division, which will include Partnerships & Business Development, Communications, Digital Media, Marketing & Branding, Production, and Talent Relations.

 As Chief Industry Officer, Marchand, a former A&R, will be responsible for both Membership & Industry Relations and Awards. Supa, formerly Senior Managing Director, Production & Business Development, will take over many of Chapman's previous responsibilities.
