Neil Gaffney


Neil Gaffney (SVP, International Affairs at ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers) has been working in the music publishing business for over 26 years with a great deal of this time spent at EMI. 

Throughout his career there have been many changes, none more important than the emergence of the digital market. Neil was tasked by EMI’s CEO with leading the team that defined the key operating and licensing elements as well as the administration framework for EMI’s relationship with CELAS, the first direct-licensing model for European digital rights in music publishing; a model quickly adopted and copied by EMI’s competitors.
