She will remain with the Canadian music licensing agency as a strategic adviser.
The Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency, Ltd. (CMRRA) has announced that its president, Caroline Rioux, will step down next year. She will remain with the music licensing agency as a strategic adviser, serving both the CMRRA and her successor, who has yet to be named.
Rioux has worked for CMRRA for more than 20 years in various capacities. She was appointed president in 2013.
"CMRRA has entered into an exciting new chapter, both as a result of its acquisition by SoundExchange/SXWorks and the important changes that are taking place in rights administration in Canada and internationally," Rioux said in a statement. "There will always be more work to do and fights to be won to ensure the prosperity of our music publisher clients. I look forward to helping CMRRA enter this next chapter of its growth."
