AMPAS vets take senior management positions

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has promoted Scott Miller and Kimberly Roush to senior management positions, COO Ric Robertson announced Wednesday.

Miller, who will continue to serve as assistant general counsel — a position he’s held since 2002 — has also assumed the role of managing director of administration, while Roush has been elevated to managing director of membership and awards. Both will report directly to Robertson.

Miller’s new duties will include campaign regulations and compliance, building and theater operations, and Oscar statuette manufacture and distribution.

“Scott has played a crucial and effective role in protecting our work and our brand,” Robertson said in a statement. “This expanded position will allow him to apply his energies and intelligence to an even wider array of Academy operations.”

Roush, membership director since 2008, adds oversight of the seven-person awards department and its work, which includes Academy Awards rules and categories, the Sci-Tech Awards, and Student Academy Awards.

“Kimberly’s remarkable leadership has been vital in improving the ways we serve our members,” Robertson said. “Her skilled management of the interwoven activities of the membership and awards departments will enable them to function even more effectively and seamlessly.”
