With more than 16 years of experience at music technology organization SoundExchange, Anjula Singh is taking on an even larger leadership role — namely in the dual roles of COO and CFO. She was most recently executive vp and CFO.
During her tenure at SoundExchange, Singh has played a critical role in scaling the company for growth and investing in platforms and infrastructure that make the business of music more efficient. Moving forward, Singh will lead SoundExchange’s financial, operational, human resources and office services teams while continuing to provide leadership in day-to-day operations and in many other aspects of the organization, including the company’s move into the publisher services line of business.
Under Singh’s leadership, SoundExchange has successfully distributed nearly $9 billion in digital royalties to music creators.
“I am thrilled to announce Anjula’s well-deserved promotion to chief financial officer and chief operating officer,” said SoundExchange president and CEO Michael Huppe in a release. “Anjula has been a tremendous partner over the years in advancing the mission of SoundExchange. Her immense institutional knowledge, mastery of our business’s complexities, and ability to work across teams will be critical to our strategy and success as we move into the next chapter.”
“I’m excited to continue serving our community of over 500,000 music creators with the incredible team at SoundExchange,” said Singh. “Our mission is what drives my work at the company, and I am dedicated to maximizing the value of music and making the business more efficient for music creators.”
Singh began her career as an auditor at KPMG L.L.P., a global audit, advisory and tax services firm. Prior to joining SoundExchange in 2006, she served as director of corporate accounting for The AES Corporation, a Fortune 500 company that owns and operates a portfolio of businesses that provide affordable energy to customers in 15 countries. She has nearly 20 years of experience in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and audit.
