The British Video Association May 16 named Robert Price, managing director of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment in the United Kingdom, its new chairman.
Price, who has been on the BVA council for three years, replaces Charlie McAuley, managing director of Paramount Home Media Distribution UK. McAuley announced earlier in the year he was stepping down after three years in the role. McAuley remains on the BVA council.
“I am very pleased that Robert has been elected chair, my fourth managing director from Fox since I became director general 20 years ago. Robert has the skill and vision to lead the council as the BVA moves into a new era,” BVA’s Lavinia Carey said in a statement.
Carey recently announced she would be stepping down as director general of the BVA.
