CEO, Sony Music
One of the most powerful people in the music industry on leading a $5bn company, seizing the opportunities of streaming… and working with the biggest names on the planet.
Rob Stringer is CEO of Sony Music, one of the world’s biggest record labels, with offices in 43 countries and $5bn revenue. In this in-depth interview, he reveals how a punk fan from Aylesbury made it to the very top of the global music industry; what it’s really like working with stars like Beyoncé, Adele, and Harry Styles, and how they deal with the darker side of fame; why no one really cares about the charts any more; and how in spite of streaming apps killing traditional record sales, there are still healthy profits to be made.
