Cylke's first day at the NMPA will be Feb. 11.
Prior to his work at the MPAA, Cylke was the director of congressional and public affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, where he helped lead a coalition of companies that pushed for the passage of the Pro-IP Act in 2008.
He has also held a series of leadership positions at the House Judiciary Committee, which oversees intellectual property issues such as online piracy and music royalties. Before Cylke left Judiciary to head to the U.S. Chamber in 2008, he had served as the senior legislative assistant and deputy parliamentarian at the committee.
