Licensing company Concord Theatricals has announced a series of executive promotions.
Sean Flahaven, who became president of Concord Theatricals on its formation in December 2018, has been promoted to chief theatricals executive for Concord. He will now report to chief executive Scott Pascucci.
Flahaven was previously the founding chief executive of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s licensing and publishing organisation the Musical Company, and has 25 years as a licensing executive, music publisher, record and show producer, conductor/arranger and composer/playwright.
Bill Gaden, who has served as president, North America of Concord Music Publishing since 2017, has been promoted to president, worldwide of Concord Theatricals, reporting to Flahaven.
Other promotions include Victoria Traube to executive vice president of legal and business affairs, Michelle Yaroshko to senior vice president of professional licensing, North America and Imogen Lloyd Webber to senior vice president of marketing and communications.
Pascucci said: “While the music and theatre businesses have both been severely impacted by the pandemic, Concord remains emphatically committed to both – now, while we are all working from home, and going forward when we are able to get back to a more normal routine.
“Our senior executives and staff have all distinguished themselves these past few weeks, including the executives receiving these well-deserved promotions – all of whom have bright futures at Concord.”
Flahaven added: “I couldn’t be happier to be continuing with Concord in an expanded role. Having worked for many companies, Concord’s ongoing dedication to theatre and music in all their forms is truly unique. We’re fortunate to work with the best writers, composers and producers, and I have a team that is second to none.”
The theatrical rights organisation comprises the catalogues of R&H Theatricals, Samuel French, Tams-Witmark and the Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection.
It claims to be the “the most substantial licensing house in the world”.
