The MPAA chairman made the announcement on Friday [4] and hailed the new executive’s ” break-through strategies for high growth players.”

Strahan arrives with more than 20 years of experience in business-to-consumer and business-to-business markets.

Strahan most recently served as svp and GM, mobile, and internet registry services at Neustar and before that worked in executive marketing, sales and GM roles in Fortune 2000, mid-cap and emerging growth companies in telecommunications, internet, mobile, and media sectors. 

“Diane’s leadership talent will be a major asset for the MPAA and the studios we represent,” said Dodd [pictured]. “In her impressive career, she developed break-through strategies for high growth players and has led established brands through transformation and success by leveraging new digital technologies and innovative business models.

“I am deeply honoured Senator Dodd chose me for this post and I am excited to work with him and so many talented colleagues at the MPAA and its member companies,” said Strahan.
