He was formerly senior VP of state legislation for the org. Exec will continue to manage the state legislative operations.

Stevenson’s promotion is part of MPAA prexy-CEO Dan Glickman’s ongoing changes and staff restructuring since taking over the reins from Jack Valenti.

Glickman also recently hired well-connected Republican lobbyist Stacy Carlson as exec VP of global government affairs.
