NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The CMA Board of Directors has tapped CMA Vet Tammy Genovese as the organization's new CEO.
Genovese started her career at CMA in 1985 as Administrative Services Coordinator. She became Director of Administration Services in 1990, and then Director of Operations in 1992. She was promoted to Associate Executive Director in 1999. In 2006, she was named Chief Operating Officer. Genovese holds a masters degree in business administration, which she earned while advancing her career at CMA.
Genovese will work closely with the CMA Board developing strategies and a long-range plan for the continued growth of the organization. Last week it was announced that veteran staff member Bobette Dudley would assume the duties of a chief staff executive handling more of the day-to-day operation of CMA in the new role of Senior Vice President of Operations.
“Having someone with Bobette’s abilities overseeing our professional staff and daily operations allows me the freedom to further develop and strengthen our relationships with the City of Nashville, the music industry, the ABC Television Network, and our growing roster of corporate partners,” Genovese said. “I have a highly-skilled professional team in place and the support of the Board to focus my attention on developing a plan for the future of the organization and elevating the organization to new levels.” – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
