SoundExchange Names Huppe President

Michael Huppe

SoundExchange’s Board of Directors announced today that longtime Executive Vice President and General Counsel Michael Huppe will be the nonprofit’s new President.

Huppe succeeds former head John Simson, who announced his intention in July to return to creative work, ending his ten-year stewardship of the non-profit he had led since its inception.

In recent years, Huppe directed SoundExchange’s approach to rate-setting proceedings and a series of business-positive agreements with industry services, including much-publicized accords with webcasters.

Previously, he served as Senior Vice President for Business & Legal Affairs and Deputy General Counsel with the RIAA.

SoundExchange had record-high distributions in 2010; evidence of the group’s expanding role and importance in the industry.
