Concord has elevated industry veteran Jim Selby from chief revenue officer to chief operating officer, effective immediately. He takes over for Glen Barros, who recently departed after 25 years with the indie music company.
In this Nashville-based role, Selby will oversee royalty and licensing administration, repertoire management and IT, among other duties, and report to Concord CEO Scott Pascucci.
"Jim is an exceptional executive and we are fortunate to have him as a colleague," said Pascucci. "Our rapid and diverse growth has required us to be adept at integration and persistent at revenue collection, and Jim has excelled at both. His broad skill set will be well-deployed in his new role. Congratulations to him on a very well-deserved promotion."
Selby joined Concord in March 2016 as general manager, overseeing shared label marketing services. Not long after, he was bumped to CRO, where he oversaw the company’s strategic revenue collections as well as music technology investments.
Prior to Concord, Selby had a short stint as president of AdShare, a social media monetization service. Before that he was svp of ole Media Management (now Anthem Entertainment) and was CEO of Naxos of America for 16 years.
"I am extremely proud to be a part of Concord and would like to thank Scott and the rest of the executive team for this opportunity," said Selby. "Our rapid growth in recent years has required much hard work and innovation and I am excited to be able to focus on sharpening our operating services to better serve our roster of artists, playwrights, composers and songwriters."
