Recording Academy’s Neil Portnow To Step Down In 2019

The Recording Academy announced today that long-serving President/CEO Neil Portnow has decided not to seek an extension on his current contract, which expires in July 2019.

Portnow announced his plans to step down from his position at the Recording Academy’s semi-annual Board of Trustees meeting last week. According to the RIAA, Portnow will collaborate with the Board to create a transition plan while continuing his work as President of the Recording Academy, and Musicares, and Chair of the Board of the GRAMMY Museum.
