ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) has promoted Simon Greenaway to the role of VP membership, UK and mainland Europe.
In his new role, Greenaway will lead the ASCAP membership division from its UK office. He will report to ASCAP EVP, membership, John Titta.
Greenaway, who enjoyed success earlier in his career as a composer, producer and musician with the likes of Charlotte Church and Hans Zimmer, joined ASCAP in 2011. He has played a key role in affiliating writers and performers such as MYKL (Zayn Malik, Pillowtalk), MNEK (Never Forget You, Zara Larsson), and Ed Drewett (One Direction). Greenaway also plays a key role in ASCAP relationships with UK and continental European-based composers Max Richter, Daniel Pemberton (The Man from U.N.C.L.E) and Steven Price (Gravity), among others.
“Music has no borders and ASCAP supports music creators in Europe and all over the globe,” said ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. “Simon has been a key figure in expanding our European presence and building trusted relationships with creators and our society partners within these vital global markets.”
“Simon is a fantastic asset for ASCAP,” added Titta. “Under his direction, some of Europe’s best songwriters and composers have become ASCAP members. Having someone with Simon’s background leading our Membership team in Europe is invaluable, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to deepen our relationships with the global music community in the years to come.”
