André de Raaff

Music publishing mogul André has spent his entire career managing music rights. Before founding and managing Imagem, André applied his commercial and creative talents at Time Warner, Arcade and the Strengholt Group.

André is chairman of the Dutch music publishers' association NMUV and a board member of the Dutch performing rights society Buma.

Imagem Music Group (André de Raaff, CEO and co-founder) is the #1 independent music publishing company in the world, unique for its leadership role in classical music (Boosey & Hawkes), musicals (Rodgers & Hammerstein), and with catalogues that span pop, rock, jazz, and standards. Founded in 2008 by Dutch firm ABP, one of the world’s largest pension funds, in conjunction with Dutch independent publisher/media company CP Masters BV, Imagem Music began by acquiring music publishing rights in a number of catalogues sold by Universal Publishing, such as Rondor, Zomba, BBC and 19 Music.

This was followed by acquiring the world’s leading classical music publishing company Boosey & Hawkes (representing the world's leading classical and jazz composers from Aaron Copland and Igor Stravinsky to John Adams, Wynton Marsalis, and beyond), and Rodgers & Hammerstein (containing the rights to the world’s most popular stage and film musicals including THE SOUND OF MUSIC and OKLAHOMA!, and representing hundreds of works by writers including Irving Berlin.)

Highlights from Imagem’s ever-expanding pop catalogue include Phil Collins, Genesis, Temper Trap, Vampire Weekend, M.I.A., and Daft Punk. Imagem is proud to represent such a variety of writers, catalogues, and copyrights, combining the knowledge of experienced music publishers with the newest opportunities for exploitation.
