Australian music company the Mushroom Group has confirmed that Matt Gudinski will become its CEO with immediate effect. He takes over from his father – music industry veteran and Mushroom Group founder Michael Gudinski – who died last month.

Matt Gudinski has worked for the music firm since 2003, originally joining the company aged seventeen and co-founding the Illusive label and touring arm. He became Executive Director of the wider group in 2013, subsequently also launching its management company Role Model Artists and development label 100s + 1000s.

Confirming that he was now taking over from his late father in the CEO role, he said: “This isn’t a role that I expected to assume yet, but I am determined to honour the great legacy my father left”.

“Mushroom Group is in its strongest position ever”, he added, “and as we fast approach our 50th year I know that our incredibly talented Mushroom family will help me deliver the vision Dad and I had for the next 50 years of our business”.
