MUSIC BIZ TO HONOR DUNGAN
11/17/16

Universal Music Group Nashville Chairman and CEO Mike Dungan will receive The Music Business Association’s Presidential Award for Outstanding Executive Achievement. The presentation will take place 5/17 during the Music Biz 2017 convention at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville.

“Mike’s journey in the music business spans more than four decades,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “He has grown to be such an integral industry player, building Capitol Nashville into a major force before developing UMG Nashville into the dominant country powerhouse it is today. Mike unquestionably represents the exceptional vision, leadership and commitment that perfectly exemplifies our Presidential Award recipients.”

Dungan said  “I have always strived to spread the word about the music that I love, and music that I feel will affect people’s lives. Continuing this on such a grand scale with the spectacular roster we have here at UMG Nashville has been the most rewarding experience of my career. Now, to be recognized in this way by Music Biz is truly humbling.”

Dungan has worked in the music business since he was 16 years old, getting his start doing odd jobs in a local record store. In May of 2012, he was named UMG Nashville Chairman and CEO in May 2102 where he oversees its four label imprints—Capitol Nashville, EMI Records Nashville, Mercury Nashville and MCA Nashville.

For the second straight year, the Country Music Association will sponsor the awards breakfast.

 “This year’s honoree, Mike Dungan, as well as the past honorees, have made significant contributions to the overall music industry that have made it possible for Country Music to flourish,” said Damon Whiteside, CMA SVP of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships. “We’re excited to continue to support this event and help give all the honorees the recognition they deserve.”
