BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has elected producer Hawk Koch as its new president.
The group’s board of governors elected Koch to its top office Tuesday for a one-year term. He served as first vice president of the film academy last year and has represented its producers branch as a governor for nine years.
Koch’s credits include “Losing Isaiah,” “Gorky Park” and “Source Code.” He succeeds film executive Tom Sherak, who served three consecutive terms as president.
