TuneCore appoints Andreea Gleeson as its CEO

By | Published on Thursday 26 August 2021

Believe’s DIY distribution business TuneCore has promoted Andreea Gleeson – most recently Chief Revenue Officer – to the role of CEO. The company hasn’t had anyone with that job title since the departure of previous CEO Scott Ackerman last year.

Confirming the appointment, Believe boss Denis Ladegaillerie says: “When Andreea joined TuneCore five years ago, she brought with her a fresh perspective and proceeded to challenge music industry norms while continuing to innovate and build the company. This promotion recognises her leadership skills, expertise across product, technology, and marketing, as well as her keen understanding of artist and label needs during a period of accelerated growth in the independent music market”.

“Andreea’s elevation to CEO also underscores Believe’s commitment to gender parity and empowering female leaders”, he adds. “I’m THRILLED that she will lead TuneCore, as we shape the future of music around the world to best serve and develop independent artists”.

Gleeson herself says: “I’m inspired daily by the talented artists and industry leading team who make TuneCore the most innovative and forward thinking independent digital music distributor in the world. I truly believe in our mission – in step with our parent company Believe – to serve artists at every stage of development and will continue to build TuneCore to be the destination where artists can start, grow and manage their careers, while working to level the playing field for all independent artists”.

Following Ackerman’s departure, Gleeson was already basically running TuneCore in her Chief Revenue Officer role in partnership with the company’s Chief Operating Officer Matt Barrington. He, the company adds, will also now “expand his operational purview to encompass all TuneCore departments, working in concert with Andreea to lead the company”.
