CAMERON STRANG, 49

Chairman/CEO, Warner Bros. Records; Chairman, Warner/Chappell
Last Year's Rank: 27

In May, Jon Platt completes his transition to chairman/CEO of Warner/Chappell, which should enable Strang to bolster Warner Bros. ­roster. Jason Derulo ­continues to shine -- he sold 1.8 million downloads of his hit "Want to Want Me" in 2015 -- as does Grammy nominee and "Rise Up" singer Andra Day. The coming year also should see albums from veteran acts Red Hot Chili Peppers, Linkin Park and Green Day.
