Details from Rolling Stone Magazine January 2003:

Hilary Rosen, the chairman and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America, will leave the organization at the end of 2003. Rosen had worked for the RIAA — the trade group that represents the sound recording creators, manufacturers and distributors — for seventeen years and served as the organization’s CEO since 1998.

In a statement, Rosen expressed a desire to spend more time with her children as a motivating factor in her decision to resign. “This has been an extremely difficult decision,” she said, “but I know it is the right one for my family.”
