    In a slight upset, she beat Rob Friedman, long time industry exec, now at Lionsgate (he founded Summit).

    Boone Isaacs is the third woman president of the Academy (the first, Bette Davis, lasted a week), and the first black to hold the position.

    She’s a long time marketing exec – I can now say I interviewed for jobs with both the president and exec director of the Academy (in both cases I backed away from the positions for different reasons).

    Boone Isaacs’ expertise is publicity. She now has held every single office the Academy has. She produced the honorary awards program the last ciouple of years.

    Does anybody know anything about her? What are her plans with the Academy? Does she do anything else than marketing?
