Musician and entrepreneur Dave Stewart has joined the advisory board of online music biz connections portal Music Gateway.
The B2B platform, which was founded in 2011 by Jon Skinner, allows creative and music industry professionals to connect and work together across A&R, music supervision and more.
Stewart joins a board that includes Future Group CEO Rob Nunn, Notting Hill Music Publishing Chairman Andy McQueen and Cord Worldwide CEO Daniel Jackson.
Also involved are LyricFind VP/International Publishing Robert Singerman, Snowhill Capital CEO Andrew Pepper, SRC Partner Rupert Rawcliffe and former VP of HP Computers Martin Hess.
“I am really impressed with what Music gateway have achieved in such a short period of time. It’s exciting to be a part of something which has huge potential in aiding the music industry across the board.”
“Music Gateway’s been on my radar since first meeting Jon during its infancy and I am really impressed with what they have achieved in such a short period of time,” said Stewart.
“It’s a pleasure to be on board helping them progress to the next stage of their development and exciting to be a part of something which has huge potential in aiding the music industry across the board.”
Skinner added: “We are taking the company to the next level and it’s a pleasure to have the likes of Dave, Daniel, Andy and the rest of the board in place to help steer our development and growth across the creative sphere.”
