Audio Network in London has promoted Ian Ginsberg to General Manager of Audio Network U.S. Inc. In his new role, Ginsberg will be responsible for overseeing the company’s business operations in the U.S. and Canada, directing a team that produces and publishes music for content creators across multiple industries including television, broadcast, advertising, corporate, film and trailer spaces.
Ginsberg will be based out of the company’s office in New York City and collaborate closely with Audio Network’s executive team in its London headquarters.
Ginsberg has an extensive background in music and entertainment, including six years on the label side at Sony Music/Sony BMG, a stint as VP of the Sony/RED-distributed Lateral View Records, and in artist management as a partner at Sky High Entertainment, a boutique firm with a client roster that featured the multi-Platinum selling Grammy Award-winning Lenny Kravitz.
“Since I joined Audio Network, the response to our music, people, brand, and ethos in the U.S. market has been incredible," Ginsberg says. "The U.S. is the world’s most important market in media and entertainment, and Audio Network is committed to providing that market with real music, top talent, and the best service. I’m excited to take on a greater leadership role as we continue expanding upon the amazing growth we’ve seen in the U.S. so far."
“Increasing our presence in the U.S. market is a key part of Audio Network’s future, so this is an important time for us as a company,” says Chris Blakeston, CEO Audio Network. “Having solid, proven leadership in the U.S. is essential, and we’re incredibly fortunate to have that in Ian. He’s been central to our growth and success in the U.S. since he joined us, and we know that will continue as he takes on greater responsibility as our General Manager in the U.S.”
In addition to Ginsberg’s promotion, Audio Network announces that it will be expanding its operation in Los Angeles with a new downtown address and significantly increasing its U.S.-based staff. Brad Burnside, Audio Network’s U.S. Head of Television, will be based out of the new Los Angeles office full time as of next spring.
