AMPAS Hires Search Firm to Find Next Executive Director

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has embarked on its search to find a new executive director to succeed Bruce Davis, who has announced he will retire on June 30.

The Academy has enlisted executive search firm SpencerStuart, whose Judy Havas will head the team charged with identifying candidates.

The Academy is hoping that by March will have zeroed in a choice who can be brought before the board of governors for their approval.
