Kinsey Fabrizio: The New Face of Leadership at Consumer Technology Association

In a landmark announcement on February 22, 2024, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) unveiled Kinsey Fabrizio as its new president, marking a significant shift in its leadership. Stepping into this pivotal role, Fabrizio brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success within the organization.

Fabrizio’s journey with CTA began in 2008 when she joined the membership department, demonstrating her commitment to the industry from the outset. Over the years, she ascended through the ranks, showcasing exceptional leadership qualities and a keen understanding of the rapidly evolving landscape of consumer technology.

Her tenure at CTA has been marked by numerous achievements, including spearheading initiatives to expand the association’s reach into new domains such as disruptive innovation, content, and digital health. Under her stewardship, CES—the premier event in the tech world—experienced unprecedented growth, with Fabrizio playing a pivotal role in its continued success.

Gary Shapiro, the current CEO of CTA, expressed his confidence in Fabrizio’s abilities, emphasizing her exemplary leadership and industry insight. “This well-deserved promotion reflects not only Kinsey’s many successes, excellent judgment, and industry knowledge, but her executive leadership,” said Shapiro, underscoring the significance of her appointment.

As president, Fabrizio will assume responsibility for critical departments within CTA, including CES, membership, conferences, and marketing and communications. Her elevation to this role underscores CTA’s commitment to fostering talent from within and ensuring a seamless transition in leadership.

However, it’s important to note that this transition does not mark an end but rather a continuation of Gary Shapiro’s enduring legacy at CTA. Shapiro, a stalwart figure within the association for over four decades, will continue to serve as CEO, overseeing all aspects of CTA’s operations, from CES to public policy and research.

Pat Lavelle, Voxx CEO and Chairman of the CTA Compensation Committee echoed the board’s sentiment, emphasizing the meticulous succession planning that led to Fabrizio’s appointment. “Kinsey’s hard work, successes, get-it-done attitude, and positive attitude propelled her to president,” remarked Lavelle, highlighting Fabrizio’s undeniable contributions to the organization.

With Fabrizio at the helm, CTA is poised to navigate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the ever-evolving landscape of consumer technology. Her thoughtful leadership style and proven ability to deliver results have earned her the respect and admiration of colleagues across the organization.

In the words of Deena Ghazarian, chairwoman of the CTA Executive Board, “Kinsey represents the best of CTA.” Her vision, dedication, and strategic foresight will undoubtedly guide CTA toward continued success.

Beyond her professional achievements, Fabrizio is a testament to the values of perseverance and determination. A graduate of George Mason University and the University of Maryland Global Campus, she balances her career with a fulfilling family life in Arlington, Virginia, alongside her husband, two children, and beloved dog, Rocco.

As we embark on this new chapter in CTA’s history, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to Kinsey Fabrizio and look forward to witnessing her transformative leadership in action. She is poised to shape the future of consumer technology and drive innovation forward with Gary Shapiro and the entire CTA team.
