ASCAP has named Nick Lehman Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy & Digital Officer, reporting directly to ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews. Lehman most recently worked as Chief Strategy Officer for TEGNA, and prior to that was President of Digital for NBCUniversal.
Matthews commented: “ASCAP is driving innovation through strategic partnerships and digital product development to move the entire industry toward data alignment and better services to music creators and our industry stakeholders. Nick’s track record of launching, scaling, and transforming converged media and technology companies through product innovation and strategic alliances makes him a perfect fit for ASCAP’s transformation agenda. I am thrilled that he will be part of our executive leadership team.”
Lehman said, “The ASCAP repertory of music is not only an enormously positive force in our culture, but it is a major catalyst for driving the growth and success of virtually every media platform. I am excited to help lead ASCAP into new areas, technologies and partnerships that will support our members and help them thrive in the future.”
