The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) – owner and producer of CES®, the world’s most influential technology event – today announced the promotions of three staff members to vice president-level positions. Mike Bergman is now Vice President, Technology & Standards; Jamie Boone is Vice President, Government Affairs; and Kinsey Fabrizio is Vice President, Member Engagement – all three previously served as senior directors in their respective departments.

“Jamie, Kinsey and Mike have made positive, meaningful impacts as individual contributors and members of broader teams – and I’m proud to recognize and reward their success and dedication,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Each of them exemplifies the passion, teamwork and ingenuity we at CTA – and the tech sector as a whole – value as critical elements of the innovative spirit. We’re fortunate and honored to have such talented and driven members of the CTA team.”

Mike Bergman joined CTA in 2013 as senior director, technology & standards. In addition to managing CTA’s WAVE (Web Application Video Ecosystem) project – the industry’s largest commercial streaming video interoperability project – Bergman now directs industry efforts to improve IoT cybersecurity. Prior to joining CTA, Bergman was vice president of new technologies for Kenwood USA – during which time he served as co-chair of the National Radio Systems Committee’s Digital Radio Broadcast Subcommittee – and vice president of engineering, radios at Sirius Satellite Radio. He received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a member of the men’s gymnastics team. Bergman also holds two U.S. patents for programmable memory process technologies.

Jamie Boone began her career at CTA as director of government affairs in 2014 and was promoted to senior director in 2017. Her current scope includes policy expertise on self-driving vehicle policies, transportation innovation and privacy. Before joining CTA, Boone served in the Washington, DC office of Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA) – then-chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee – as deputy chief of staff and legislative director. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Susquehanna University and now serves on the board of the Women’s High Tech Coalition.

Kinsey Fabrizio has been with CTA for 11 years and focuses on increasing member engagement and strategic growth in emerging tech categories, including leading CTA's health and fitness technology initiatives. She joined the association in 2008 as a manager and most recently served as senior director of member engagement, working with member groups including CTA’s Content and Entertainment Council, Video and Wireless Divisions and Disruptive Innovation Council. Fabrizio also serves in volunteer leadership roles for ASAE: The Center for Association Leadership, and in 2015 was honored as one of Dealerscope’s “40 Under 40.” Before joining CTA, she worked with SmithBucklin and Northern Virginia Mediation Service. Fabrizio received a Bachelor of Arts from George Mason University, majoring in both Government & International Politics and Spanish.
