ASCAP announced Monday, April 6, the appointment of Alice Kim as the organization’s EVP, Chief Strategy & Development Officer, reporting to ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. Kim will oversee strategy, business development, product development and administration services as ASCAP charts a new course to offer enhanced services to its songwriter, composer and music publisher members and to its licensing partners.
Kim started her career in investment banking at Dean Witter and venture capital at CIBC Capital Partners and Dolphin Equity. She then joined a couple of start-ups, PreCache and Enpocket, both of which were acquired by Fortune 100 companies. Kim continues to be an avid angel investor and a strong advocate of start-ups in NYC.
“ASCAP is transforming to offer innovative new services to our members and licensing partners in order to meet their needs in this new and evolving era in the music and media landscape,” says Matthews. “Alice has deep expertise of consumer behavior, trends in digital content adoption and monetization models. She is uniquely positioned to help us harness our assets for the benefit of our songwriters, composers and publishers as well as our licensing partners as we move into a world of increased data transparency and efficiency.”
