WASHINGTON, DC – September 16, 2019 – SoundExchange today announced the promotion of Anjula Singh to Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer of SoundExchange. In addition to her existing role as CFO, she will help implement the vision and overall strategy of SoundExchange as well as assist with oversight of the organization’s day-to-day management. Singh will continue to report to President & CEO, Michael Huppe.
“Anjula’s leadership as Chief Financial Officer has been essential to the success of SoundExchange, and she was instrumental in helping us distribute nearly $1 billion to music creators last year,” said Huppe. “I look forward to her serving as Executive Vice President and the positive impact she will bring to our organization and the music creators we serve.”
Singh has served as SoundExchange’s Chief Financial Officer since 2014. She will continue in that role where she is responsible for the company’s financial, human resources, and facilities management teams.
“Whether it is providing royalty solutions or advocating for fair pay across all music platforms, I’m thrilled to help advance SoundExchange’s passion for taking the “noise” out of the royalty administration aspect of the business and ensuring the best level of service to the music community,” said Singh.

She has nearly 20 years of experience in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, and audit, along with preparing companies for their initial public offering (IPO’s) primarily in the healthcare and energy industries.
Singh began her career as an auditor at KPMG L.L.P., a global audit, advisory and tax services firm and received her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Maryland.
