ASCAP ELEVATES THREE TO SVP
1/27/22

ASCAP has promoted three executives to SVP. Elizabeth Rodda is upped to SVP of International Affairs, Matt DeFilippis to elevated to SVP of Licensing and Alex Grout is named SVP of Membership and Business and Legal Affairs.

“Liz, Alex and Matt are three strategic executives who have been important contributors to ASCAP’s success in achieving the goals of our six-year plan to grow revenues and build a sustainable future for our songwriters, composers, lyricists and music publishers,” said ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews.

Based in Miami, Rodda will optimize international revenue for ASCAP’s members and continues to lead the International Analyst Team while working with ASCAP’s partner collective management societies and data partners. She reports to Tony Dunaif, ASCAP EVP of International Affairs. Rodda began her work at ASCAP in 2013 as Regional Relationship Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean.

N.Y.-based DeFilippis will be responsible for revenue from traditional and digital audio and audio-visual streaming platforms. He will also help to develop overall growth strategies for existing and potential licensees, as well as generate new licensing opportunities. He reports to ASCAP EVP of Licensing, Stephanie Ruyle. Before joining ASCAP in 2001, DeFilippis worked in Strategic Planning at the National Music Publishers Association/Harry Fox Agency.

Also based in N.Y., Grout will be responsible for complex membership, copyright, licensing and transactional issues. He’s also a key negotiator with songwriter and composer members regarding affiliation and distribution matters. Grout reports to ASCAP Chief Legal and Business Affairs Officer, Clara Kim and will also work under the direction of ASCAP CCO, John Titta.
