Television Academy Taps Maury McIntyre to Fill President-COO Post

The Television Academy has promoted digital exec Maury McIntyre to president and chief operating officer, filling the post left vacant in April by the death of Lucy Hood.

McIntyre has been with the TV Acad since March 2013, signing on as VP of digital. He previously served as an exec at Disney Interactive, and before that he held digital and marketing posts at Tokyopop and 20th Century Fox.

“Maury is a dynamic executive whose vision and experience has helped propel the Academy into the future,” said TV Academy chairman-CEO Bruce Rosenblum. “Equally important, Maury stepped up during a very difficult time for the Academy to not only lead the staff, but ensure that our membership and organization continued business as usual.”

Hood, the former Fox and News Corp. exec, died of cancer at age 56 after 10 months on the job. McIntyre is credited with boosting the TV Acad’s digital presence, its social media activity and for steering the rollout of its online voting system.

With the promotion, McIntyre will take over Hood’s mandate to revitalize the TV Acad’s infrastructure as well as play a big part in fundraising for the Academy’s expansion plans.
