Michael Huppe sets the strategic direction of SoundExchange. In doing so, he oversees the company’s efforts to launch new lines of business, creates new data and technology solutions for the music industry, and advocates on behalf of the company’s over half a million creator community – all with the goal of making the business of music easier and fairer for creators across the globe. During his more than decade-long tenure as president and CEO, SoundExchange’s annual collection of digital performance royalties on behalf of creators has increased from $292 million to over $1 billion. SoundExchange’s best-in-class transparency, efficiency and scale have made the company the “gold standard” for collective management in the music industry.
