PLEDGEMUSIC TAPS MEAD FOR LABEL RELATIONS

Bryan Mead, a founding member of Universal Music Group’s Fontana Distribution executive team, has been named Senior Vice President, Artist and Label Relations, for PledgeMusic. Mead will report to CEO Dominic Pandiscia and will be based in Los Angeles, where he will lead the New York-headquartered company’s West Coast base.

“Bryan Mead brings 25+ years of industry expertise to his new position at PledgeMusic, including extensive experience in the evolving new music business,” said Pandiscia. “Bryan has a deep understanding of the value of developing new fans around an artist and optimizing that relationship. He adds a unique perspective to PledgeMusic’s executive team and will be key in reinforcing the value our platform brings to artists, labels, managers and fans.”

Mead will oversee PledgeMusic’s domestic artist, label and management relations. He is responsible for establishing new industry alliances, implementing strategies and acquiring clients and campaigns that will spur overall company growth and best utilize its technologies and integrated network, which includes NoiseTrade and Set.fm.

Mead was most recently INgrooves Music Group’s Senior Vice President, Label Services and Marketing, and has held artist development, sales and marketing positions at Universal Music Group Distribution and Sony Music Distribution.

“PledgeMusic has developed into the premier marketplace for superfans,” Mead said. “It’s a platform where artists and labels can leverage a wealth of marketing opportunities and maximize existing and new revenue streams, and fans can purchase the most unique experiences and products. I am bursting with enthusiasm for what PledgeMusic has up its sleeve in 2017.”
