The governing Board of Trustees of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced the election of a new chairman of the board. The position goes to Charles L. Dages, formerly the executive vice president of emerging technology for Warner Bros.
Dages will work with the Executive Committee and the Board of Trustess on all of the organization’s major programming, sponsorship and marketing efforts, in accordance with the group’s mandate to recognize excellence in the television and media industry, the organization announced.
Said Dages: “Much has been written in the consumer and professional press of the changes occurring in our industry … the television industry. These well documented changes are tectonic: the diversity of new channels continues; the new business models for funding and paying for content are multiplying; the mobile platforms that laterally free the consumer to watch anytime and anywhere. This is an exciting time and the opportunities and challenges we must master will lead those who lead to reap the rewards. I am confident that with the combined talents of our board of trustees and NATAS staff, working together with our experienced leadership across the country in our nineteen regional chapters, the National Academy will grow and prosper while leading its membership into in this exciting time that many are calling the ‘second golden era’ of television.”
