Viacom vet to replace Grossman

Women In Film, Los Angeles has tapped 25-year Viacom vet Cecelia Holloway as its new prexy, outgoing topper Iris Grossman announced Tuesday.

Additionally, the L.A. branch has named Gayle Nachlis to the newly created position of executive director.

Holloway, who will serve the standard three-year term, was most recently senior veep of diversity for Viacom. She has served on WIF’s board since 2004.

WIF has a longstanding history of empowering women in the entertainment and media industries,” Holloway said. “I am delighted to be able to offer my extensive experience in this area, as well as my commitment and passion toward diversity and inclusion, to help take WIF to the next level.”

Nachlis, a former William Morris talent agent, will spearhead a dialogue at WIF between administration and membership. She’ll oversee all operating committees, managing both short- and long-term strategies; and establish ties with businesses, the local community, donors and related not-for-profit partners and universities.

Founded in 1973 in Los Angeles, WIF is dedicated to women in the global entertainment industry. The Los Angeles chapter boasts more than 2,400 female and male members.
