PANDISCIA TO PLEDGE

Well-respected biz veteran Dominic Pandiscia has officially joined PledgeMusic—the direct-to-fan platform for artists—as its CEO. He replaces Benji Rogers, the company's founder, who will continue to serve on the Board of Directors and in the newly created role of Chief Strategy Officer.

In August, Pandiscia announced that he was exiting indie distribbery Caroline, which he'd led as President since 2013, ending his run after three consecutive years of marketshare growth and four #1 albums—the first #1s in the 30+ year history of Caroline.

"PledgeMusic holds a truly unique position in the increasingly crowded digital music landscape, and I feel privileged to take the helm for its next chapter,” Pandiscia stated. “Our user base was radically expanded with the recent acquisitions of NoiseTrade and Set.fm, and we look forward to further empowering artists to attract passionate new audiences while deepening the relationship with their current fan base. I'm eager to dig in and work with Benji Rogers and the entire PledgeMusic team to best serve our communities and create new ways to market and connect to fans.”

“It has been a great honor to lead the PledgeMusic family up to this point and I could not be more proud of all that we have achieved together,” Rogers added. “Dominic is exactly the type of artist-first executive that PledgeMusic needs as we grow and scale and I am excited to work alongside him in this new growth phase for the company.”
