Silvia Montello (US)
Senior music industry executive with 30 years marketing, commercial, strategic and operational experience, including music product development, label management, multi-discipline marketing, brand campaigns, business development, and global supply chain management. I’ve worked for majors, indies and startups, including PolyGram/Universal, BMG, Kobalt/AWAL, Blokur, Audio Network and now am CEO at Association for Electronic Music.
In 2011 I founded a music and marketing consultancy Voicebox Consulting Ltd working with charities, non-profits and SMEs, gaining valuable insight into how working cultures can differ outside media and entertainment.
Recently co-founded dance and electronic music label services/publisher #remarqabl to find, support and represent the marginalized/under-represented new talent in electronic music – female producers/songwriters, creators from diverse ethnic backgrounds, from the LGBTQ+ community and neurodivergent creatives
One of the founding members of Moving the Needle, an educational platform whose mission is to help support women in the UK music industry through their career, working to highlight the huge diversity of roles available to women in our industry and to help them navigate the challenges of rising to senior leadership and boardroom level.
