Billboard’s First Power Players’ Choice Award Goes To Brandon Silverstein

The founder/CEO of S10 Entertainment wins the peer-voted award.

In 2023, Billboard introduces the Power Players’ Choice Award, a peer-voted honor chosen by Billboard Pro members to honor the executive they believe has had the most impact across the music business in the past year. After more than 1,500 votes cast across three rounds of voting, Pro members selected Brandon Silverstein, founder/CEO of S10 Entertainment, for this year’s award.

As a manager, Silverstein has helped build Anitta’s and Normani’s breakout careers, while moving S10 into publishing, recorded music and film/TV. Since expanding S10’s publishing venture with Avex USA last year, the company — Brandon Silverstein Publishing — now represents songwriters-producers-composers HARV (Justin Bieber’s “Peaches”) and Grammy winner Jasper Harris (Jack Harlow’s “First Class”), among others.

“Being recognized by the music industry as one of the most powerful and impactful executives is an absolute honor,” says Silverstein, who is a previous honoree on Billboard’s Latin Power Players and 40 Under 40 lists. “I’m proud of what we’ve built with S10 on a global level and the trust our artists and creatives have in me and my team.”
