NMPA & HFA Mourn Passing Of Arnold Broido On October 25, 2007
Member of the NMPA and HFA Board of Directors and President of Theodore Presser Washington, DC & New York, NY – The National Music Publishers' Association (NMPA) and The Harry Fox Agency (HFA) are greatly saddened to announce the passing of Board member Arnold Broido on October 25, 2007 after a long series of illnesses.
"Arnold's dedication to the NMPA, The Harry Fox Agency, ASCAP and the principals of Copyright will be sorely missed," said Irwin Z. Robinson, Chairman of the Board for NMPA and HFA. "With over 30 years of service to these and other industry associations, the value of his contributions will be difficult to replace. It was a great pleasure serving on these boards with Arnold both as a colleague and a friend."
Mr. Broido started in music as a piano student at the Mannes School and Julliard, and, after serving in World War II, began working in the stockroom at Boosey & Hawkes. His career took him from Boosey to Century and Mercury Music, then to E.B. Marks, Frank Music Corp., and Boston Music. Finally, in 1969, he became President of Theodore Presser Company, the oldest continually operated music publisher in the United States.
"Arnold Broido was one of the true gentlemen of the music industry. His wise voice and cherished friendship will be missed greatly by all who had the honor of knowing him," said David Israelite, NMPA President and CEO.
"Arnold was an amazing man, who had a very progressive view of our industry and was a big believer in change," said Gary Churgin, HFA President & CEO. "He was an absolute icon both here and abroad. Most important, he was the nicest person anyone could meet."
In addition to serving on the NMPA Board and the HFA Board as both a Director and as Treasurer, he held positions as Treasurer of the ASCAP Board, President of the Music Publishers Association of the United States, Chairman of the International Confederation of Music Publishers, and President of the International Federation of Serious Music Publishers.
Mr. Broido leaves behind his beloved wife Lucy and three sons, Jeffrey, Laurence, and Thomas.
