Music industry executive and guru, Michelle Jubelirer was recently promoted to Chair and CEO of Capital Music Group becoming the first women to do so.
Jubelirer first joined Capitol Records as an Executive Vice President in May 2013. From there she was then promoted in 2015 to COO, and then President in 2020. Prior to joining the label, Jubelirer was a partner in a music business law firm in Kings Holmes Paterno & Barliner. At KMPB she represented EDM stars such as Swedish House Mafia and Avicii and many others.
As Chair and CEO Jubelirer will oversee and manage the record label taking control of the overall label along with creative direction. Amongst Capitol Music Group she will be in charge of its subsidiaries such as Capitol Records, Blue Note Records, Astralwerks, Harvest Records, Capitol Christian Music Group, and Virgin Music Label.
In the year 2021, it does not look good for this particular company to have their first women as their CEO. Although I applaud their efforts in diversifying their company, there is no reason it has taken this company over 80 years to have their first women in a CEO position.
