ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) has promoted Elizabeth Rodda to the role of VP, international affairs.
Rodda, who joined ASCAP in 2013, will be based in Miami and will continue to serve as a key member of ASCAP’s international affairs team, aiming to drive revenue-generating activities for the ASCAP repertoire outside the US.
In her new role she will be responsible for building and maintaining ASCAP’s relationships with other collection societies around the globe. In her previous role of director of international affairs, Rodda was focused on tracking performing rights society market developments and identifying opportunities to grow the organisation’s global capabilities in order to increase ASCAP’s foreign revenue.
She began her career at ASCAP as regional relationship manager for Latin America and the Caribbean.
“Liz has proved herself an extremely valuable member of our international team,” said ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. “Her ability to dig deep into our business with other collections societies has yielded strategic insights that has helped ASCAP strengthen our operations on a global scale.”
Before joining ASCAP, Rodda worked as an independent consultant and held publishing and licensing positions with Planet Records and Caribe Sound and Music Publishing.
