Curtis LeGeyt has assumed the President and Chief Executive Officer post at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), effective January 1. LeGeyt takes the helm after a 12-year run by former Oregon Senator Gordon Smith, who has transitioned to an advisory and advocacy role with NAB. In addition, Michelle Lehman will assume the additional role of NAB's chief of staff while retaining her current role as EVP of the Public Affairs department. Lesley Pena is being promoted to deputy chief of staff. Both are newly created positions within the organization.

"The broadcasting community is extremely grateful to Gordon for his many years of service as an influential advocate for our industry," said NAB Joint Board of Directors Chairman David Santrella, who is CEO of Salem Media Group. "We are excited to now have Curtis at the helm to guide the organization into its next chapter. He is a proven leader and skilled fighter on behalf of broadcasters, and we are thrilled to have him serve as our voice in Washington and around the world."

"It is an honor to lead this great organization and advocate for the local television and radio broadcasters that inform, entertain and serve their communities every day," said LeGeyt. "I am grateful to our Board of Directors for placing its trust in me and look forward to working alongside them, the entire NAB team and our members to ensure a vibrant future for broadcasting."

NAB's senior leadership team under LeGeyt will consist of:

  • Chris Brown, executive vice president and managing director, Global Connections and Events

  • April Carty-Sipp, executive vice president, Industry Affairs

  • Shawn Donilon, executive vice president, Government Relations

  • Michelle Duke, chief diversity officer and president, NAB Leadership Foundation

  • Tea Gennaro, chief financial officer and executive vice president, Finance and Administration

  • Rick Kaplan, chief legal officer and executive vice president, Legal and Regulatory Affairs

  • Sue Keenom, senior vice president, State, International and Board Relations

  • Michelle Lehman, executive vice president, Public Affairs

  • Sam Matheny, chief technology officer and executive vice president, Technology

In her new role, Lehman will serve as an advisor to LeGeyt and assist him in implementing his vision for the organization, guiding cross-departmental initiatives and focusing on NAB's strategic priorities. Pena will serve as an advisor to LeGeyt and Lehman and will work with NAB departments to ensure the association's operational priorities are met.
