ACADEMY NAMES SHAWN FINNIE EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT,
MEMBER RELATIONS AND AWARDS


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has promoted Shawn Finnie to Executive Vice President, Member Relations and Awards, Academy COO Christine Simmons announced today.  Finnie will report directly to Simmons. 


Finnie will lead engagement and outreach initiatives for the organization’s global membership of more than 10,000 artists, filmmakers and executives and oversee Academy Awards® processes for submissions, rules and voting.  He will lead a team of more than 20 staff and work closely with the Academy’s Office of Representation, Inclusion and Equity and the Branch Executive Committees on member representation and inclusion efforts. 
 
“Shawn is a unique and innovative leader.  He brings to this position the collaborative, solution-oriented and engaging style that has driven results throughout his time at the Academy,” said Simmons.  “His efforts to foster greater representation and connectivity among the global membership, expand how we serve our members and strengthen relationships within the greater film community have been and will continue to be invaluable to the organization and the industry as a whole.”

An Academy staff member for the past eight years, Finnie most recently held the position of Senior Director, Member Relations and Awards.  In this role, he was responsible for member outreach and engagement, industry relations and amplifying the Academy’s initiatives in representation and inclusion.  He oversaw branch committees and membership initiatives for Actors, Casting Directors, Marketing and Public Relations, Artists’ Representatives and Associates.  Finnie played a key role in such events as the Governors Awards and the Academy Women’s Luncheon and led efforts to deliver a personal and seamless experience for each Oscar® nominee.  Last summer, as part of the Academy Aperture 2025 initiative, he also helped launch “Academy Dialogues: It Starts with Us,” a conversation series focused on race, ethnicity, gender, history, opportunity and the art of filmmaking.
