Congress

Dodd Lands Role as CEO of Motion Picture Association

March 1, 2011

The Motion Picture Association of America announced today that it has selected a creature of Washington -- and not Hollywood -- as its new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer: former Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut. Dodd, who served in the upper chamber from 1981 until his retirement last year, will replace Bob Pisano, the President and Interim CEO. Pisano filled in after Dan Glickman, who served as Agriculture Secretary under President Clinton, announced he would resign as MPAA Chairman in January 2010.

The MPAA will need Dodd's firepower as its steps up its efforts in Washington to protect its members from piracy that is easily enabled by the Internet and digital technology. "I am truly excited about representing the interests of one of the most creative and productive industries in America, not only in Washington but around the world," Dodd said in a statement. "The major motion picture studios consistently produce and distribute the most sought after and enjoyable entertainment on earth. Protecting this great American export will be my highest priority." Dodd assumes his new position on March 17, St. Patrick's Day.
