DEWAYNE ECTOR HEADS DOWNTOWN
1/7/21

Downtown Music Holdings has appointed Dewayne Ector to the newly created position of Chief Revenue Officer.

Ector will report to and work closely with Downtown’s Chief Commercial Officer, Tracy Maddux, and continue to be based in London.

In his new role, Ector will oversee the negotiation and maximization of revenue from digital licenses covering all rights types represented across Downtown’s business units.

The appointment follows his tenure leading Downtown-owned subsidiary Songtrust as Global Head of Partner Relations and Income Tracking. 

“Dewayne’s knowledge and command of the complicated global royalties landscape and his commitment to both clients and colleagues make him ideal for this important role," shared Downtown CEO Justin Kalifowitz

“I couldn’t be more honoured and humbled to be entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring the digital use of songs belonging to Downtown’s diverse and ever-increasing clientele across the entire group are properly valued,” added Ector.

During Ector’s time at Songtrust, the company expanded its direct affiliations to 60 different collection societies and rights organizations covering royalty collections in 216 different countries, roughly 90% of the globe, as well as increased royalty payments to clients.

Prior to joining Songtrust in early 2019, Ector served as Head of International for AMRA and spent eight years with PRS for Music in the U.K. With over 20 years of experience in the music industry, Ector began his career working as a producer and studio engineer.
