Exec ankles RIAA post

ORLANDO, Fla. — After seven years at the Recording Industry Assn. of America, exec veep/general counsel David Liebowitz will ankle the trade org to pursue other interests.

Liebowitz’s contract expires at the end of the month, and he said he decided not to renew it.

“I’ve had seven wonderful years here, and we’ve accomplished a lot in that period,” Liebowitz told Daily Variety. “But it’s time to try something else.”

The Liebowitz departure comes a few months before RIAA prexy Hilary Rosen is expected to assume the CEO title, currently held by Jay Berman, marking the another change in the org’s upper ranks.

Berman, whose contract expires in December, will hold the title of chairman until Rosen assumes the RIAA’s top slot.

Liebowitz, who gets high marks from execs at the Big Six record companies, has been an active member of the org and involved in all facets of RIAA initiatives, including issues regarding antipiracy, copyright protection and legislation involving the recording industry.
