Downtown’s music royalty collection and publishing administration service Songtrust has appointed Molly Neuman as its new President. She joined the company as Global Head of Business Development in 2017.

“Molly’s leadership has been an essential element in Songtrust’s tremendous growth over the past two years”, says Downtown CEO Justin Kalifowitz.

“She is genuinely invested”, he adds, “in the success of our songwriters and publisher clients, having been both herself, and is driven to help achieve Songtrust’s goals of delivering equity and innovation to the music rights ecosystem. As we continue to expand the broader Downtown portfolio, Joe [Conyers, Songtrust’s co-founder] and I have no doubt that Songtrust will continue to flourish as Molly assumes her new role as President”.

Neuman herself adds: “I am elated to be the new President of Songtrust, in part because I am deeply, personally connected to Songtrust’s core mission to support creators, songwriters, producers, composers, their representatives and the businesses who work with them in accessing the money they are due”.

“I am grateful for the confidence placed in me by Justin and Joe”, she goes on, “and remain committed to continuing to grow the Songtrust client base, drive our technological edge, and continuously improve our industry leading processes and global collection capabilities. We have an incredible team in place to make this possible and I am honoured to work alongside them”.

Neuman takes up her new position with immediate effect.
