Sherman Becomes RIAA's Chairman and CEO

The Recording Industry Association of America announced Monday that Cary Sherman will be its new chairman and CEO, effective September 1. Sherman succeeds Mitch Bainwol, who resigned his position to become CEO of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.

Sherman has served as RIAA president since 2001, after joining the organization as general counsel in 1997.

The RIAA also announced that Mitch Glazier, who has spent the last 11 years in charge of the organization's government relations activities, has been appointed senior executive vice president. In this new role he will continue to lead the RIAA's activities on Capitol Hill and assume broader responsibilities as well.
