Randy Himes has joined The TEAM Companies, a payroll provider for the concert tour and sound recording industries.
Formerly SAG-AFTRA Nashville Executive Director, Himes is now The TEAM Companies’ Vice President of Labor Relations and Director of Business Development. The company has recently expanded into the Southeast region.
“Labor laws, union agreements and generally what it takes to conduct business in the music world have become more and more complicated,” says Himes. “I am excited to be able to continue to work with recording artists and their representatives in my new role at TEAM. The TEAM Companies have years of music industry experience as well as tools and processes that simplify hiring and paying singers, musicians, and other folks whether they’re recording an album or out on tour.”
During his career, Himes also spent a decade as the union’s Assistant National Director for Sound Recordings. During his tenure, he was involved in negotiating worldwide streaming provisions as well as updating other aspects of the code to keep pace with the changing music landscape.
Himes was also involved in agreements including the Nashville songwriter and publisher’s demonstration recording agreements, as well as the national music video, independent artist and touring agreements and numerous specialized industry agreements, including the Armed Forces Radio and Television agreement and the artists and performers agreement for the Grand Ole Opry.
