The AMERICAN SOCIETY OF COMPOSERS, AUTHORS, AND PUBLISHERS (ASCAP) has promoted MICHAEL MARTIN to the newly created role of VP for its NASHVILLE membership office. MARTIN transitions from his former position of Dir./Membership-Creative, where he jointly led with the recently departed LEANN PHELAN (NET NEWS 5/4), and will now report directly to ASCAP EVP/Membership JOHN TITTA.
"ASCAP's NASHVILLE community of writers and publishers is a rich vein of musical creativity, collaboration, and success," stated TITTA. "While ASCAP transforms itself to offer innovative new services to our members, we are fortunate that MICHAEL has been at the vanguard of this change in his previous ASCAP role. Moving forward, we need a strong leader in NASHVILLE that understands the dynamics and needs of this valuable community. MICHAEL's expertise in fostering close bonds with our NASHVILLE membership and his vision for enhancing ASCAP's relationship with both emerging and established writers and publishers make him the perfect choice to lead our talented Creative team in MUSIC CITY."
