UMG EVP Michele Anthony, who will be honored as the UJA Federation 2017Music Visionary of the Year at a luncheon next Wednesday, 6/14, will be the first woman to receive the award as a solo honoree.

“Doing good through organizations such as UJA and helping artists bring their music to a global audience are two of my greatest passions,” she said. “I’m humbled to be recognized by UJA and honored to receive this award. Now pass the bialys.”

She oversees UMG’s U.S. Commercial Services Division, which includes sales, college marketing, Insights, fan and consumer engagement, as well as content strategy, operations and partnerships. She also oversees UMG’s global brand partnerships and live events, working with the company’s labels to maximize commercial and strategic opportunities to establish new revenue streams, form alliances with third parties and create a variety of special projects.

Additionally, Anthony jointly oversees UMG’s film, television and theatrical projects along with UMPG Chairman/CEO Jody Gerson, as well as streaming marketing with UMG’s EVP of Marketing Andrew Kronfeld.
