Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)^® president and CEO Gary Shapiro
announced today that Jim Davin has been named vice president of membership and
Siri Tyler has been promoted to vice president of finance. Shapiro also
announced that long-time CEA employee Karen Chupka has been given a new title,
senior vice president of International CES and corporate business strategy.

Davin will lead CEA’s membership development, member program activities and
member recruitment and retention. Prior to joining CEA, Davin spent eight
years with Johnson & Johnson as head of retail promotions and execution for
Walgreens and team lead director for Meijer. In these roles, Davin worked to

“We are very excited to have Jim join our CEA team,” said Shapiro. “Our staff
and CEA members will benefit from Jim’s years of unique experience in client
outreach and relationship development. I look forward to working with Jim to
build and enhance CEA’s membership department so that we continue to provide
strong value for all of our members.”

As vice president of finance, Tyler will directly oversee CEA’s team of
accountants and finance professionals. Tyler joined CEA in 2004 as director of
finance and was instrumental in establishing CEA’s budgeting and financial
reporting process. CEA also congratulates Tyler on recently passing his CPA
examination. Prior to joining CEA, Tyler worked as the senior accountant for
the American Bar Association where he provided financial analysis and
financial reporting for the association’s $50 million federal award portfolio.

“Siri is an invaluable part of CEA and not only has a strong financial
background but also a great work ethic and an infectious sense of humor,” said
Shapiro. “Siri’s leadership allows CEA to operate effectively and efficiently
when it comes to cash management and financial reporting.”

Chupka received her new title in recognition of her expanded role in driving
CEA’s overall strategic direction while continuing to oversee the
International CES^®, the world’s largest innovation event. Chupka will
continue to supervise CEA’s events and conferences departments. Under Chupka’s
leadership, CES has grown to feature a record amount of exhibit space, with
the show floor totaling more than 1.87 million net square feet in 2013, and
has won numerous awards, including being named as the largest annual North
American tradeshow by Tradeshow Executive magazine and Tradeshow Week every
year since 2001. Chupka has been with CEA for 23 years and has held numerous
roles within the organization. Prior to working for CEA, Chupka worked with
other organizations including the Gartner Group, the National Association of
Manufacturers and the University of Pittsburgh.

“Karen’s leadership of all CEA events, and specifically the International CES,
has been vital to the overall success of CEA,” said Shapiro. “Karen’s
increased focus on our strategy and international presence will provide the
continued development of new business opportunities that will help drive
industry growth while strengthening our organization.”
