Dunbar, alongside other co-founder Benji Rogers, provides continuity at the company that has seen a number of executive changes at the top in the last year or so, including the appointment of new CEO Dominic Pandiscia and the increased involvement of board member Russell Rieger, who heads up the entertainment division at one of the firm’s key investors Magna.

Confirming the new deal with Dunbar, Pandiscia said: “Malcolm Dunbar has done an outstanding job of building and growing the vision for PledgeMusic in the UK and beyond. The partnerships he has developed and results delivered this year are remarkable. It’s been a privilege working with Malcolm and his team as we forge an incredible future for PledgeMusic and I look forward to continued success”.

Dunbar himself added: “Dominic, Russell and Magna have brought a new level ambition to PledgeMusic with their entrepreneurial approach and support, deep industry ties, and experience and knowledge of the US market. PledgeMusic moves onwards and upwards under their guidance”.
