JAMES DONIO said. “FRED is a key player in the digital music marketplace with a keen understanding of the technological, legal and business issues currently facing the industry. We look forward to working with him to move the entire music business forward.”
“Over the course of my career at THE HARRY FOX AGENCY (HFA), RIGHTSFLOW and now YOUTUBE, I’ve become fully immersed in the music business and well-versed in the challenges it faces,” said BETEILLE. “As MUSIC BIZ Chairman, I look forward to applying my knowledge to the industry as a whole, ensuring that all of our members and all kinds of music artists are able to take advantage of the latest opportunities around advanced technology, rights management, new business models, and more. Following in the footsteps of a leader as admired and respected as Rachelle is quite the challenge, but I’m ready for it.”
