Brad Yuan arrives after years in the music space as VP, Operations at Beyond Oblivion and COO at Yonder Music among many others,where he focused on building sustainable models for music streaming in international markets. He's spoken at A2IM, CMJ and other conferences about his experience launching several music services.
Noam Mantel is the new Head of Product Management. Noam was most recently VP of Product Management at the IoT startup Weissbeerger which was acquired by Anheuser-Busch Inbev at the beginning of 2018. Her diverse experience as a product expert and entrepreneur across several industries and business models will provide a fresh take on the issues the music technology faces today, particularly around scalability and sustainability for complex music rights management systems. Having built solutions with Machine Learning and Natural Language processing further proves Songtrust’s commitment to innovation.
In 2018, we've doubled our client base, opened three new offices and added more than 50 people to the team.
“At Songtrust we’re committed to innovation and building solutions for the music industry that don’t merely solve for the problems we’re facing today, but also what challenges we expect to meet in the future,” said Songtrust’s Co-Founder Joe Conyers III. “The addition of Brad and Noam to our leadership team signals our commitment to developing a world-class product.”
