Supervisory Board

Our Supervisory Board consists of 14 people. They are appointed by our shareholders (GVL and Deutscher Musikrat) and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. The members cover the broad spectrum of the music industry in Germany. With the new members appointed in 2022, emphasis was placed on increasing the number of creative professionals, thus once again focusing on the needs of artists.
