Tim Wipperman has joined ONErpm as managing director for Nashville.

In his new role, Wipperman, a Billboard Country Power Player for 2022, will oversee staff and operations in Nashville, including negotiations for artist deals. Wipperman previously served as president of Anthem Music Publishing Nashville.

Wipperman, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, moved to Nashville in the 1970s and began leading Vector Music Publishing. He later worked for Cedarwood Publishing as a song plugger and at Combine Music, where he pitched songs for writers including Kris Kristofferson.

Wipperman later spent nearly 30 years as a senior executive for Warner Bros. Music (which later became Warner Chappell). Following his time there, Wipperman worked at Equity Music Group for five years and then launched his own company, Wipperman Music Group. He served as CEO of Rezonant Music Group before becoming president of Anthem Music Publishing Nashville in 2019.


To date, Wipperman has earned BMI, ASCAP, and/or SESAC publisher of the year honors more than 10 times. During his time at Warner, Wipperman and his team won over 500 ASCAP, BMI and SESAC Awards, Grammy Awards, CMA and ACM Awards. Also during Wipperman’s career, he has signed artist-writers including Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town and more.

“I’m honored to join the ONErpm team, and look forward to building an amazing, diverse roster in Nashville, managed by a premiere staff focused on artist engagement and development,” Wipperman said via a press release.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Wipperman’s caliber run our Nashville office and know he will grow our presence in Music City exponentially,” added ONErpm founder Emmanuel Zunz.

ONErpm, a next generation music company, operates one of the world’s largest music distribution platforms and YouTube multi-channel networks. ONErpm is located in 29 cities across 20 countries, with a staff of over 450. The company also recently opened an Atlanta office, with Orlando McGhee at the helm, as head of urban music for ONErpm.

The news of Wipperman joining ONErpm follows his departure from Anthem Nashville Music Publishing at the end of June. Gilles Godard was recently named president of Anthem Nashville Music Publishing.
