Allan J. Tepper Forms Tepper Music Management

Specializing in the art of the song, music publisher Allan J. Tepper has taken his 30 years of experience, creating Tepper Music Management.

His new venture will focus on all aspects of music publishing and related business consulting, including songwriter and artist development, as well as licensing songs for film, TV, and advertising placement, something Tepper has excelled in. As one of the first publishers to work directly with advertising agencies, he changed the perception of the way songwriters used their music. Over the years, Tepper, a creative leader, has nurtured many new and established artists and songwriters, and successfully represented the song catalogues of such preeminent musical forces as such as Billy Joel, Cole Porter, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, Moby, Michael Bolton, and Ira and George Gershwin.

Christophe Depreter Appointed As SABAM's New General Manager

The Board of Directors of the Belgian Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers (SABAM) has chosen, on Tuesday February 10, 2009, Mr Jacques LION's successor as head of the company. His name is Mr Christophe DEPRETER, the current Executive Manager of Operations. The new General Manager will come into office on July 1, 2009.

Christophe DEPRETER started his career at SABAM in 1997, as Manager Grand Rights and Visual Arts. For several years now, he has held the post of executive manager of all the society's collection and distribution operations. Aged 43 and trained as a lawyer, he also represents SABAM within various professional organizations both in Belgium and abroad, where his skills and his multilingualism are unanimously praised.

UMGD Expands Executive Team And Erases Lines Between Physical & Digital

Universal Music Group Distribution (UMGD), the award-winning sales, marketing and distribution arm of Universal Music Group, the world's leading music company, has expanded its executive team with the promotions of Amanda Marks to Executive Vice President & General Manager of Universal Music Distribution (UMD) and Laura Saez to Senior Vice President of Sales, UMD, as well as with the appointment of Mitch Rotter to Vice President of Marketing, UMD.

Following these appointments, UMGD becomes the first major music distribution company to formally do away with any division between physical and digital services. Instead, the company will continue to offer the most extensive array of personalized marketing and sales services in the industry, allowing artists and partner labels to move more seamlessly between digital and physical retail opportunities.

Gary Cannizzo Elected Treasurer Of BMI Foundation

Gary Cannizzo has been elected as a Director and Treasurer of the BMI Foundation, Inc. In his role as Treasurer, Cannizzo will oversee all aspects of finance and investments for the Foundation. Formed by BMI employees 29 years ago, the BMI Foundation sponsors a variety of programs designed to support music education, encourage talented young musicians in all genres of music, and to promote music in communities all across America.

"While the BMI Foundation has luckily weathered the current financial storm unscathed, it is deeply comforting to me and to all our Foundation Directors to have Gary at the board table with us overseeing our finances and leading our investment strategy," said BMI Foundation President Ralph N. Jackson. "Clearly, his years of experience and expertise will help insure the Foundation's continued financial health and well-being."

Swedish Music Information Centre Appoints Stina Westerberg As New CEO

Stina Westerberg is a public relations manager specialising in market communication, before which she was a flautist in numerous symphony orchestras for 20 years. She was most recently employed at the Vadstena Academy, where she was appointed CEO in December 2003.

During her time at the Vadstena Academy, Stina contributed significantly to the development of both the organisation and its information activities. She also elevated the profile of the academy and initiated enriching collaborations with other music institutions. These are experiences from which she is sure she will benefit at the Swedish Music Information Centre.

"It's really important to launch Swedish composers and their music, both at home and abroad. For years, the Swedish Music Information Centre's departing CEO, Roland Sandberg, has been working on an international level, and I intend to follow suit. There's also reason to look into how we can further develop the way we handle the important archives that the Swedish Music Information Centre manages, and how we can secure the place of newly written Swedish music in the repertoires of orchestras and ensembles."

NARM Welcomes Bill Wilson To Management Team

The National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) announces that Bill Wilson has joined the organization as the Director of Digital Strategy and Business Development.

In this newly created position, Wilson is responsible for enhancing NARM's role in the growth of the digital and mobile industries, as well as leading the development of those membership segments. Working closely with NARM's management team and diverse group of members, he will devise initiatives, programs and services that will augment the organization's charter in the broader entertainment media / technology space. He will also oversee NARM's new "Digital Think Tank," a group created to explore and analyze industry objectives.

Prior to joining NARM, Wilson was with Atlantic Records, as the Senior Director of Mobile Sales and Business Development with responsibility for sales of ringtones, ringbacks, images and full track downloads. He was instrumental in building relationships with mobile carriers, third party content providers and D2C partners. In addition, he worked closely with original equipment manufacturers and software companies to develop new product types, programs and services.
