THE ORCHARD, an independent music, film and video distribution company, celebrates RICHARD GOTTEHRER’s nomination for SESAC’s special “Visionary Award.” This is only the second year SESAC has bestowed this award, and the performing rights organization is honoring GOTTEHRER’s contributions to the music industry over the past five decades.
“When the SESAC executives met to discuss the possibility of a Visionary honoree as part of this year’s Pop Awards, RICHARD GOTTEHRER was the obvious choice,” said SESAC SVP, Writer/Publisher Relations TREVOR GALE. “RICHARD is a visionary in every way, starting out as a songwriter in the BRILL BUILDING to becoming one of the most innovative and passionate music executives in our business. He continues to create and grow in a constantly changing environment. We applaud him for his tenacity and commitment to our industry and are honored to call him SESAC’s Visionary Honoree of 2014.”
