Bob Valentine New President of Concord Music

Concord Music Publishing has named its CFO New Zealander Bob Valentine the new president of the company.

According to Music Business Worldwide editor Murray Stassen, Nashville-based Valentine first began his association with Concord in 1999, when he worked as vice president of business development for Norman Lear’s Act III Entertainment.

During his career spanning nearly two decades at Concord and its predecessor entities, Valentine has helped to deploy over $1.5bn of equity and debt capital to acquire music and theatrical rights and was a key contributor in driving Concord’s growth from an $8m/year jazz record label to a $500m+ revenue global music company.

Concord CEO Scott Pascucci said: “This is a well-deserved promotion in recognition of his invaluable contributions to the future vision of Concord.”
