RECORDING ACADEMY LOCKS IN HARVEY MASON JR. AS CEO

The search is over. After serving as CEO on an unpaid, interim basis since January 2020, Harvey Mason Jr. has been appointed President/CEO of the Recording Academy, effective 6/1. Mason will relinquish his role as Chair of the Academy's Board.

Search committee co-chairs John Burk and Leslie Ann Jones released a joint statement that said: “We are delighted that Harvey will remain at the helm and continue to steer the organization through this pivotal time. As we journeyed deeper into our extensive search, it became clear that the best person for the job was Harvey. We are immensely impressed by the remarkable work he has done during his interim tenure and look forward to the continued evolution of the Academy under his effective, results-driven leadership.”

"I want to commend the search committee and our partners at Heidrick and Struggles for orchestrating a robust and exhaustive search for our next President and CEO," said Tammy Hurt, Vice Chair of the Recording Academy.

"There is nothing more rewarding than having the trust and respect of your colleagues and peers," Mason said. "I am honored to have been appointed to continue to lead the Recording Academy on our transformative journey. While I had not initially expected to be in this position, I remain deeply invested in the success of the organization and am motivated to help us achieve our greatest ambitions. I will serve humbly with a steadfast commitment to building a more inclusive, responsive and relevant Academy."
