Peter Brodsky has been promoted to General Counsel and Executive Vice President, Business Affairs, at Sony/ATV, reporting directly to Chairman and CEO Jon Platt.

Brodsky leads the company’s legal and business affairs department worldwide and is responsible for building and implementing its global business strategy as well as providing guidance and counsel on all Sony/ATV legal matters. He also oversees Sony/ATV’s major catalog acquisitions, North American digital initiatives and strategies for licensing its catalog to digital music services and other platforms.

He also plays a vital role in U.S. legislative matters related to music publishing, such as copyright reform, and works closely with the National Music Publishers’ Association on these issues. Recently, his reform efforts included the passage of the Music Modernization Act in 2018.

“Peter is a key member of Sony/ATV’s leadership team, and his invaluable counsel is integral to our success,” Platt said. “His guidance on strategic business opportunities is of great benefit to our global teams and, most importantly, to our songwriters. An expert in copyright reform, Peter has been an influential advocate for the songwriting community, and I am confident he will continue to move the needle as our new General Counsel.”

Previously EVP, Business Affairs, at Sony/ATV, Brodsky has led the company’s legal and business activities since 2007.
