Genovese Leaves CMA

 Tammy Genovese has resigned as CEO of the Country Music Association after 24 years with the organization.

Steve Moore, chairman-elect of the CMA board and a Sr. VP of AEG Live! will serve as interim director of the CMA while the board conducts a search for a new executive director.

Genovese played numerous roles during her career at CMA, beginning in 1985 as administrative service coordinator. She was promoted to CEO two years ago following the retirement of Ed Benson. She had many accomplishments, most recently helping the 2009 CMA Music Festival, during a year of contraction, see record attendance.
