GIVEN MUSIC PUBLISHING has appointed MIKE SEBASTIAN to VP/GM.
"Songwriters are the heartbeat of our industry," said GIVEN's CINDY OWEN and JIM KACMARCIK in a joint statement. "It was important to find someone with the vision, track record and a strong commitment to the writers and the songwriting community to lead our publishing division. We have found all of that in MIKE and are honored to have him join our executive team as we build our GIVEN ENTERTAINMENT family."
SEBASTIAN has worked in music publishing for over 25 years. He was most recently Sr. Dir. of Catalog after the sale of his company BLACKTOP MUSIC GROUP in 2010.
"Knowing CINDY for 20 years and the reputation she has in the industry and the businessman I have come to know in JIM, I am thrilled to have this opportunity with them. I look forward to building a great publishing company together. After the success of BLACKTOP, I've been wanting to start a company again, and they have provided me the chance," said SEBASTIAN.
