LOS ANGELES – The Motion Picture Association (MPA), the global advocate of the motion picture, streaming and television industry, today announced that Pamela Corante, a senior communications expert, will be joining the organization as Vice President of Global Communications.
At the MPA, Corante will lead communications for the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE), the world’s leading coalition dedicated to protecting the dynamic legal ecosystem for creative content, and the Trusted Partner Network (TPN), the MPA’s industry-wide film and television content security initiative.
Corante will dual report to Jan van Voorn, Executive Vice President and Chief of Global Content Protection at the MPA and Head of ACE, and John Mercurio, MPA Senior Vice President of Communications. Based in Los Angeles, Corante will start Jan. 3, 2023.
Corante will join the MPA from Virgin Hyperloop, a Los Angeles-based transportation technology company, where she leads Communications. Previously, she led Internal Communications at AT&T Latin America’s digital entertainment division.
“As we enter a new year, I’m confident Pamela will be an excellent addition to the MPA, where she’ll work closely with the ACE and TPN teams on some of the biggest priorities of the association and our member companies,” said van Voorn. “Her skills and experience align perfectly with our mission to combat the existential threat piracy poses to the world’s creative economy.”
“I’m thrilled to welcome Pamela to the MPA, where she will lend tremendous value to our communications efforts,” said Mercurio. “In her previous roles, by all accounts, Pamela has built a successful record of thinking creatively and strategically to advance a wide range of goals, and I’m confident she’ll expand upon that success as a leading member of the MPA Communications team.”
“It is an honor to join the MPA’s world-class team to build awareness of ACE’s global mission to fight piracy and TPN’s content security assessment services,” said Corante. “The MPA is a global force with a simple mission: to support content creators and ensure they can continue to tell stories loved by audiences around the world. I fully support that mission and look forward to using my skills and experience to help us achieve it.”
