Int’l TV Academy lifts Leclere

Sr. VP will be responsible for org's outreach programs

LAS VEGAS — Georges Leclere, longtime executive director of the International Academy, has been promoted to the newly created position of senior VP.

In addition to exec producing the International Emmy Awards gala and remaining actively involved in all of the I-Academy’s committees, Leclere will be responsible for the org’s outreach programs and for representing it at TV industry events around the world.

Camille Bidermann-Roizen, who joined the I-Academy last year as general manager, now becomes executive director, with responsibility for day-to-day management of the organization.

Both will report to prexy-CEO Bruce Paisner and chairman Fred Cohen.

“With the I-Academy’s growth into a true worldwide organization, we needed to broaden and strengthen our management structure to accommodate an increasing workload,” Paisner said in announcing the promotions.

Leclere, who joined the I-Academy staff as executive director seven years ago, when it was known as the International Council, has a distinguished career in journalism and public policy. He was an on-air newscaster for the French channel Antenne2, a producer for TF1 and France 3 and, in the U.S., the head of the United Nations Television, Press and Radio division.

Bidermann-Roizen is a TV producer and production executive who grew up in France and has worked for CNN, Hearst Entertainment and McKinsey & Co.

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is the largest organization of global broadcasters, with members from 62 countries and more than 350 companies.
