Lee Morrison said: “We are extremely excited to have such a highly experienced executive join the MonoKrome team. John has been at the forefront of many changes within the industry and, drawing from that knowledge base, MonoKrome can continue to grow and build on its long term strategy.
“We will continue to invest in our in house technology so our clients can manage their rights and we can push for transparency across the industry.”
Kristian Davis-Downs added: “Rich data is key to everyone’s success and having that stored in an accessible but secure location with the ability to update and polish where required will ensure that our clients are represented correctly and efficiently.
“The technology is second to none, by starting with a clean slate and using the knowledge gained over the last 20 years, I am confident we can eliminate a lot of the problems associated with different rights-holders today.”Music Business Worldwide
