Platt

Chairman / CEO

In March 2019, Platt became music publishing’s most powerful executive when he left his post at the helm of Warner/Chappell to succeed Martin Bandier — his former boss — as chief of Sony/ATV, the world’s biggest music publisher. He quickly assembled a new team, hiring new heads in the U.K. and London, signing writers such as Mustard and brokering deals with the likes of Troy Carter and J. Erving’s new music and technology company, Q&A.

He was City of Hope’s most recent Spirit of Life honoree.
