Concord Music execs Scott Pascucci (CEO), Steven Salm (Chief Business Development Officer), and Jake Wisely (Chief Publishing Executive), will deliver a shared keynote at Midem 2018 on June 6 in Cannes, France.
The trio will highlight how the group has evolved from a small independent publishing company (Bicycle Music) and label (Concord Music Group) to a global independent company encompassing all fields of the business from recording to publishing, to film and TV production, thanks to the ownership of a unique catalogue of musical works. They will also discuss how they have been able to develop a strong acquisition strategy to grow their musical and international footprint.
“It is important to welcome leading independent companies who are pushing the business forward by creating new and innovative business models, so we are honoured to host Concord Music, since it perfectly encapsulates the global music ecosystem which we promote at Midem,” said Alexandre Deniot, Director of Midem.
“Midem has been an important annual tradition for our executives throughout the evolution of Concord Music. With our acquisition of Imagem last year, Midem is now more than ever the place to come together with our global music industry peers to talk about creativity, productivity, and connectivity. I look forward to the Concord Music keynote and Q&A with my colleagues Jake Wisely and Steven Salm. Hopefully what we’ve learned from our successes and failures in our ever-changing business will help others — and vice versa,” said Pascucci.
Midem takes place in Cannes, France, from June 5-8 2018.
