Beatport has hired Alex Branson as SVP Music Services. In the role, he will oversee the company’s suite of professional tools and services for distributors, labels and artists.

“Over the last two decades working as an executive in the music business, Alex has developed a unique set of skills that deliver value to rights holders”, says Beatport CEO Robb McDaniels. “As the leader of our newly formed Music Services business unit, Alex will curate and expand the Beatport Pro Suite of SaaS tools to help independent content owners increase revenue and exposure in the global DJ market”.

Branson previously worked with McDaniels at music distributor Ingrooves, where he was SVP International. He also worked for Warner Music, prior to becoming a consultant for various music companies and launching his own ABC Music Talk podcast, which he will continue to host.

“I’m excited to rejoin Robb at one of the most progressive and forward thinking music companies in the world”, says Branson. “My job is to listen to what artists, labels and distributors who rely upon the Beatport community need, then build or acquire tools and services to help them accelerate their careers and businesses”.

Branson will continue to be based in London.
