Duckworth leaves MPAA

Communications maven moves to RIAA

The MPAA’s remaining spokeswoman in the D.C. office is ankling to join the Recording Industry Assn. of America.

Cara Duckworth, the MPAA’s communications director for almost two years, will make a lateral move to the RIAA, where she will be communications director starting June 25, the music lobby announced Monday.

Duckworth’s departure follows within weeks of Gayle Osterberg’s exit. Formerly a senior veep for MPAA communications, Osterberg left to start her own PR consulting company.

Move leaves MPAA’s D.C. office without a spokesperson, but the org plans to replace Duckworth eventually. In the interim, all communications will be handled by the Los Angeles office.

Prior to working at the MPAA, Duckworth was an aide to various GOP congressmen.

“We are delighted to have Cara as part of the team,” RIAA topper Mitch Bainwol said in a statement. “Her strong background and experience will serve us well as we advance issues that help build an exciting marketplace for music fans.”
