SACEM restructures collections society for increased transparency

SACEM, the French songwriter and composer collection society, announced that it is restructuring. The group is consolidating its licensing, international, and operations divisions into a single department. With the change, Cécile Rap-Veber has been promoted to the role of executive director of licensing, international, and operations. The revised structure took effect on January 1.

“This new structure will better equip SACEM to provide fair and transparent distribution of royalties and ensure a sustainable future for the creative sector, as the digitalization of both music and audiovisual content continues to increase,” SACEM CEO Jean-Noël Tronc said.

“SACEM has long been at the forefront of anticipating change in the industry and innovating its own approach and service to meet the demands of a rapidly changing music and audiovisual landscape,” Rap-Veber said. “I’m delighted to be leading SACEM’s new division, driving change within the industry by integrating these three departments to form one collaborative team which will deliver an enhanced and streamlined service for our members.”
