Platt

Chairman / CEO

Platt didn’t wait for 2020’s Black Lives Matter demonstrations to bolster diversity at the world’s largest music publisher. Since his April 2019 arrival, Sony/ATV doubled the number of women on its global senior leadership team and tripled its POC U.S. execs. He stepped up philanthropic efforts through several social-justice causes this year and matched employee contributions with initiatives like “Giving Tuesday.” COVID-19 prompted Sony/ATV to support impacted musicians through Nashville Songwriters Association International and several others. Expedited foreign royalties, new studios in Atlanta, expansions in emerging markets and a partnership with online marketplace BeatStars also helped maintain Sony/ATV’s leading status.
