The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Foundation, affiliated charities of The Recording Academy, announced that their respective boards have elected new officers as well as additional directors. Steve Schnur, worldwide executive of music and marketing for Electronic Arts, will serve as the GRAMMY Foundation's chair. Les Bider, executive in residence for Elevation Partners, will continue to serve as MusiCares' chair.

"We are extremely pleased that both organizations continue to attract such passionate and committed directors and officers," said Recording Academy, MusiCares and GRAMMY Foundation President Neil Portnow. "Their participation elevates the level at which we work to fulfill the important mission of each Foundation."

In addition to the newly elected Schnur as chair, the GRAMMY Foundation roster of officers is filled by the executive vice president and office of the chairman of EMI Music North America, Phil Quartararo, as vice chair; and chairman and co-founder of Levy Restaurants and chairman and CEO of The Levy Organization, Larry Levy, as secretary/treasurer.

The newly elected GRAMMY Foundation directors are Gary Arnold, senior vice president of entertainment, Best Buy; Henry Juszkiewicz, chairman and CEO, Gibson Guitar; and GRAMMY-nominated saxophonist and radio show host Dave Koz.

"Having previously served for two years as a board member, I am privileged to be deepening my commitment to the GRAMMY Foundation as its new board chair," said Schnur. "I am honored to serve an organization that is a leader in both music education for young people and advancement and preservation work."

With Bider continuing to serve as chair of MusiCares, the remaining officer slots are held by the chairman and founder of the 31-year-old magazine Black Radio Exclusive (BRE) and Black Renaissance Exclusive (BRE,) Sidney Miller Jr, as vice chair; and Urban Network Publisher and CEO Miller London as secretary/treasurer.

Newly elected MusiCares directors are Paul Caine, publisher, People Group; Doug Frank, president, music operations, Warner Bros. Pictures; and Scott Pascucci, president, Rhino Entertainment.

"It is an honor to serve a second year as board chair of MusiCares and work with our talented and dedicated board members and staff to further our important mission," stated Bider. "Because of their stewardship, we are able to thrive and continue to provide critical services and resources for the music community."
