Miss Universe CEO Amy Emmerich steps down from her position


Amy Emmerich, the current CEO of the Miss Universe Organization, has decided to step down from her role effective March 1. However, she will continue to contribute her expertise to MUO in an advisory capacity for the next few months.

"This was an incredible experience, and I'm so proud of this team's accomplishments during my tenure. We created new business lines, grew revenue, managed through two acquisitions, created a digital-first organization, and reshaped this iconic brand for a new era – a program that advocates for a future forged by women," she wrote on her LinkedIn account.

"Over the past two years, we've seen incredible growth, not only in our numbers but in the attributes that really matter to women worldwide. We saw our first moms compete and make it to the finals. Our first married women, our first plus-size delegate, our first trans woman to make it to the Top 20, and already for 2024 women of all ages are competing at national levels. Not only have we left the business in a stronger place, but we've left the program with the kind of goodwill and modern outlook that can transition to the next generation of fans," she continued.

"I thank Anne and Raul for asking me to partner with new management in this advisory role as we continue to serve over the hundreds of franchise partners, millions of dedicated global fans, and of course the thousands of exceptional women who are the heartbeat of this organization."

Amy joined the Miss Universe Organization back in January 2022 under the leadership of then-president Paula Shugart.

Thai transgender business mogul Anne Jakrajutatip of JKN Global Group acquired the brand months later, resulting in an all-women leadership team for the first time in MUO's history.

Following this change, Paula Shugart, who had served as president for an impressive 23 years, announced her departure from the organization during the Miss Universe 2023 final in El Salvador last November.

Last month, JKN Global made a strategic move by selling 50% of its stake in Miss Universe to Legacy Holding Group, which is headed by Mexican entrepreneur Raul Rocha Cantu.
