BMI and HFA Named In InformationWeek 500

The Harry Fox Agency and BMI have both scored spots on the InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. HFA has placed in the top 250 for three consecutive years, landing at No. 183 on the 2011 list, and BMI ranked at No. 74—one of only two media companies inside the Top 100.

“BMI is proud to be included among such innovative and distinguished organizations,” said James King, Senior Vice President of Business Operations and Technology for BMI. “To be selected for the InformationWeek 500, especially to No. 74, is truly an honor and a recognition of our commitment to innovatively and efficiently use technology to better serve the performing rights of the songwriters, composers and music publishers BMI represents. Our information services platform is a critical component in the work we do on behalf of our members.”

HFA’s technologies have allowed the organization to provide innovative rights management solutions to digital music providers, content creators, independent labels and more. As a result, HFA has played an important role in startups such as Spotify, Napster and LyricFind.

“HFA remains committed to meeting the challenges of a constantly changing digital landscape,” said Lou Trebino, HFA’s SVP & CIO. “Technology is fundamental to HFA’s DNA, our constant innovation has enabled us to not only remain relevant, but to remain a fundamental and integral force in an industry where speed, transparency and accuracy ensure customer success.”
