Brooklyn, NY – September 30, 2020 – TuneCore, the leading digital music distribution service provider for independent artists, today announced executive management appointments. Andreea Gleeson has been elevated to Chief Revenue Officer and Matt Barrington has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer, reporting directly to Denis Ladegaillerie, Chief Executive Officer of Believe, TuneCore’s Paris-based parent company.

TuneCore and Believe together distribute close to one third of the world’s digital music. So far in 2020, TuneCore is in the midst of an upward trajectory with exponential growth in new clients and distribution across all markets around the world.

Announcing the new corporate structure, Denis Ladegaillerie, CEO of Believe Group said, “The elevation of Andreea and Matt to oversee the company as co-heads affirms their contributions in strengthening TuneCore’s services and growth in order to best serve artists at all stages of their careers on a worldwide basis.”

Gleeson joined TuneCore in 2015 as head of marketing and was subsequently promoted to Chief Marketing Officer.  In her expanded role as Chief Revenue Officer, Gleeson will oversee Marketing, Artist Support, Entertainment Relations and International. Among her immediate goals will be to reimagine the TuneCore artist support and artist and label relations areas to best serve artists at all stages of their careers as well as pursuing partnerships in order to maximize opportunities for TuneCore artists. Gleeson is also spearheading the company’s international expansion into key music markets, both established and emerging.

“I joined TuneCore 5 years ago because I connected with the company’s mission and wanted to be a part of an organization that not only empowered independent artists but advocated for their needs and interests,” said Gleeson. “I look forward to new countries, new partnerships, new employees, and new artists, yet the same artist first independent spirit as we continue to build the best independent music distribution platform in the world.”

Barrington, most recently Chief Financial Officer of TuneCore, will oversee the Finance, Data, Technology, Product, Operations and Legal Departments. Having joined TuneCore in 2010, over the course of Barrington’s decade-long leadership, TuneCore has become recognized as the most trusted, consistent and transparent place for independent artists to earn money from their music. In his new role, Barrington will further optimize distribution product to offer the best services for artists.

My time at TuneCore has been immensely fulfilling, having helped build the company from a start-up to where we are now,” commented Barrington.  “It’s an extremely exciting time as we continue to refine our best in class technology and practices in order for TuneCore artists to receive maximum benefits as we scale, innovate and embark on TuneCore’s next chapter.”

This month, TuneCore expanded into Brazil and Russia, two very important growth markets, robust with local talent.
