ASCAP has promoted John Johnson to Sr. VP of Licensing. Based in Nashville, Johnson will report to ASCAP Executive VP, Licensing, Vincent Candilora.
In his previous role as VP, Licensing Operations and Systems, Johnson led the transition of the performing rights organization’s licensing practices to more advanced cloud technology solutions.
Johnson joined ASCAP in 1995 and held positions in collections, general licensing, business analysis, and licensing operations. He holds a B.A. in Management and Human Relations, and an M.B.A. from Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville.
“Over the past nineteen years John has proven to be Licensing’s principal source of guidance for the many technical and innovative solutions we have implemented. All of these operational changes have directly attributed to ASCAP’s reduction of overall operating expenses,” said Candilora. “As ASCAP innovates new ways to provide our licensee partners with the most efficient licensing models and access to our diverse, high quality repertory, I am highly confident that John will continue to play a key role.”
