UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP Chairman/CEO LUCIAN GRAINGE has been honored by BILLBOARD as the top executive on its list of the 100 most powerful people in the global music industry. GRAINGE is the only executive to appear at #1 on the ranking three times – 2013, 2015 and 2016 – and he is the first to hold that rank for consecutive years.
“This is an enormous honor and a recognition of the work of our entire UNIVERSAL MUSIC team, many of whom are also individually recognized on the Power 100 list,” GRAINGE said. “True power originates with the artist and their creativity, and it’s amplified by the dedication and passion of our employees around the world. And as much as we've accomplished so far, we have truly only just begun. We remain focused on leading the industry into an exciting new future and we’re committed to a vibrant music ecosystem that’s in the mutual interest of all participants.”
