Songtradr, the digital music distribution and synch licensing platform, has hired Virginie Berger in the role of VP, Rights Management. Berger made the announcement on LinkedIn. She will will lead Songtradr’s Rights Administration platform and manage relationships with PROs, CMOs, and other key industry leaders, and will work across Songtradr’s many offices in four continents.
Prior to working with Songtradr, Berger was a founding venture partner at the early-stage capital firm DBTH Capital (Right Tech) and a mentor at The Rattle. She was also the former CEO of Armonia Online, the first pan-European licensing hub for online music and co-founded WeAreMusicTech (WAMT). Earlier in her career Berger had a stint at Microsoft.
“I’m excited to be joining the innovative team at Songtradr and I’m inspired by their artist-first approach,” said Berger. “In the sync licensing and distribution space, Songtradr is already a gamechanger so providing an innovative, accurate and efficient solution for the collection of publishing royalties is the logical next step. I’m looking forward to spearheading this division and supporting artists and songwriters all over the world.”
Paul Wiltshire, CEO of Songtradr, added: “Virginie is a proven leader, naturally forensic and she deeply cares about artists and songwriters receiving what is owed to them. We’re delighted to have a true music rights thought leader collaborate with us on our journey.”
