The Music Business Association (Music Biz) will award Gina Miller, SVP and General Manager, Nashville for MNRK Music Group, with its Presidential Award for Outstanding Executive Achievement in recognition of her leadership and commitment to bolstering diversity and inclusion across the music industry.
Miller will receive this honor during the 2nd Annual Bizzy Awards dinner May 17 as part of the Association’s Music Biz 2023 Conference at the JW Marriott Nashville.
Having spent nearly two decades with MNRK Music Group (formerly Entertainment One), Miller’s current role as the label’s SVP and General Manager for Nashville has her overseeing day-to-day operations and creative output for Nashville, including MNRK subsidiaries Light Records and IndieBlu Music. Throughout her career, she has used her platform and voice to both improve the ways the music business operates and create opportunities for those who are marginalized in our industry.
Miller is a Governor of the Recording Academy’s Nashville Chapter, and serves on the boards of Nashville Music Equality (which she helped found), The National Association of Black Female Executives in Media & Entertainment, The Americana Music Association, Creatives Day, Music Biz and Harmonic South. She was most recently named to Leadership Music Nashville’s Class of 2022, as well as Billboard’s Women in Music executive class in 2018 and 2020 and the Nashville Business Journal’s Women Of Influence 2021 Class.
“Those who know Gina know that she’s a powerhouse, someone who has an infectious passion for making our industry and our world a better place,” shares Music Biz President Portia Sabin. “I’m lucky to call her a friend first and foremost, not to mention a distinguished colleague and professional inspiration, and I couldn’t be happier to present her with this well-deserved award!”
The Music Biz Presidential Award is one of the Association’s highest and longest-standing honors, presented to individuals or organizations who have contributed greatly to the overall success of the music industry. Past recipients have included Sony Music Entertainment’s Julie Swidler, Sony Music Nashville’s Randy Goodman, RIAA’s Cary Sherman, Universal Music Group Nashville’s Mike Dungan, Epic Records’ Sylvia Rhone, the Country Music Association, the Recording Academy, and Dick Clark.
The 2nd Annual Bizzy Awards ceremony will be hosted by Fitz and the Tantrums co-lead vocalist, Elektra solo recording artist, and founder of Diversify the Stage, Noelle Scaggs.
