Claire Marshall previously spent 17 years at Nova Entertainment, where she held various leadership roles in programming before becoming Music Marketing Director for the network in 2014.
At Nova, Marshall helped lead procurement of over 200 live music events for the network, and mediated commercial opportunities for music partners and artists.
Marshall moved to Sony Music Entertainment as Senior Director, Catalogue Streaming & Strategic Partnerships, in 2020.
There, she led the marketing of catalog repertoire on streaming platforms, and developed brand partnerships for Sony Music artists.
