AVIA Names New GM for Coalition Against Piracy


Aaron Herps has been tapped to succeed Neil Gane as the general manager of the Asia Video Industry Association’s (AVIA) Coalition Against Piracy (CAP).

Herps was previously operations manager for CAP, working alongside Gane on initiatives such as government outreach, criminal investigations and enforcement actions against syndicates and illicit streaming website operators.

“Aaron has been instrumental to the success of CAP over the last two years, so it gives me great pleasure to see him now taking over the role of general manager,” said Louis Boswell, CEO of AVIA. “The fight against piracy never remains static, but Aaron has the creativity and skills to lead our industry’s efforts as both the threat and our response to it evolve. I am looking forward to the next chapter of CAP.”
