"The MPAA made a wise choice with the selection of Chris Dodd to be their new Chairman and CEO. Like so many people in Connecticut, I'm thrilled for Chris, Jackie and their daughters.
"Chris Dodd's demonstrated ability to collaborate, network and bring people together was honed in the Senate. His humanity, gregarious nature, compassion and humor are what endear him to all and will serve him well in his new endeavor."
