Victor Finn, CEO, IMRO. Prior to becoming CEO of IMRO, Victor Finn was Managing Director of The Mechanical Copyright Protection Society (Ireland), during which time he oversaw significant developments in the Irish music publishing industry, as income for publishers and songwriters shifted from traditional physical product to digital.
A Chartered Management Accountant with a degree in Marketing from University of Limerick. Since joining IMRO he has positioned IMRO as the primary rights organisation in Ireland, with IMRO taking on the administration of mechanical rights thus allowing one-stop shop licensing for online, mobile and broadcast music services.
As of January 2016, IMRO also acts as agent for Phonographic Performance Ireland (PPI), collecting public performance royalties on behalf of record producers and performers.
Partnerships with European collecting societies ensure that IMROs international and online revenues continue to grow. Transitioning IMRO into an efficient licensing operation in Ireland has meant the organisation continues to thrive domestically as the economy recovers.
