New Face Leading RIAA

New Face Leading RIAA

The Recording Industry Association of America has a new leader. Mitch Bainwol, former Chief of Staff to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., is the new chairman and chief executive officer of the RIAA. Association President/General Counsel Cary Sherman has been running the organization since Chairman/CEO Hilary Rosen stepped down effective July 1. Sherman stated: “Mitch’s strong background and experience will be a real asset to the RIAA.”
Stated Mitch Bainwol, “What could be more rewarding than helping to promote two great American traditions: music and property rights?”
Bainwol currently runs the lobbying firm The Bainwol Group, was previously executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and before that, chief of staff to Senator Connie Mack, R-Fla., for nine years.
Bainwol will start at the RIAA on Sept. 1.
