American music rights firm The Bicycle Music Company confirmed the appointment of a new CEO earlier this week in the form of Jake Wisely, formerly co-President at the company.

In his new role Wisely will oversee publishing, licensing and rights management for both Bicycle and sister company Concord Music, which has been in common ownership for sometime. He will report into Concord Music Group CEO Scott Pascucci.

Confirming the new gig, Wisely told reporters: “I’m so proud of what we’ve built at Bicycle over the past decade and grateful to my partners and our board for the opportunity to lead this dynamic company into the future. To be entrusted with this great catalogue is an honour”.

Meanwhile Pascucci added: “Jake has been an integral member of the management team responsible for building The Bicycle Music Company to its current leadership role in the industry. With his added responsibilities overseeing rights management and licensing for both Bicycle and Concord Music, he will be able to make even greater contributions on behalf of our writers, artists and label partners. All of us at Bicycle and Concord value his leadership and integrity and congratulate him on his promotion”.
