Music industry veteran Tom Becci has been appointed to a newly created role, leading Concord Label Group as its Chief Executive. Effective Aug. 14, Becci will oversee Concord’s entire recorded music division, inclusive of global frontline label and catalog operations.
A New Jersey native, Becci got his start in the music business as the manager of special projects for EMI North America and comes to Concord with over 30 years of industry experience, most recently a more than seven year tenure at independent music management agency Red Light Management.
While at Red Light, he worked directly with founder Coran Capshaw on organizational structure and planning, vetted and advised on new business opportunities, and negotiated and advised on artist contracts as well as the development of the artist roster, which included Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Lady A, Sam Hunt, Chris Stapleton and more. Becci also monitored investments made by Red Light Management, involving the development of yearly business plans, cash funding requirements and strategic and financial reviews. He was instrumental in the company’s label development and investments with the launch of LEO33 in Nashville as well as Chess Club Records and AMF Music in the UK.
Prior to Red Light, Becci was the COO of Universal Music Group Nashville, and was responsible for the signing of Brothers Osborne.
Becci will now be based in Concord’s Los Angeles office, home to most of Concord’s labels, and will report to CEO Bob Valentine.
“Having admired the work of Concord for years, I am thrilled to join this incredible company,” says Becci. “It is abundantly clear that the Label Group’s passionate, dedicated team works day in and day out in service of its artists and has built something truly unique. With the help of the label presidents, the entire Concord staff, and inimitable artists like Pierce the Veil, Killer Mike, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Allison Russell and so, so many more, I can’t wait to continue building on what has been established and usher Concord Label Group into a new era.”
“Concord is at a pivotal point in its company story. We have assembled an incredible and diverse roster of artists and a terrific, artist-centric staff around the world…and we are not slowing down,” stated CEO Valentine.
He adds, “Tom has spent his career helping to operate and lead some of the most important recorded music and artist management groups in the U.S. He knows what it takes to keep a music enterprise culturally, financially, and operationally healthy and I am eager to work with him as we continue to bolster our global footprint in support of artists and creators, as well as their legacies. As we enter this next chapter for Concord Label Group, I am thrilled to have him at the helm along with our label presidents and Concord’s senior team.”
