AFEM TAPS MONTELLO AS CEO
4/5/22

The Association for Electronic Music (AFEM) has named Silvia Montello as CEO, replacing Greg Marshall.

Montello first joined AFEM—a non-profit org that connects and represents the common interests of companies and artists whose business is electronic music—as a committee member in 2019. With 30+ years of music industry experience, her

career has included senior positions at Our Price Music, Gramophone Publications, PolyGram/Universal, BMG, and Kobalt Music/AWAL, where she served as SVP of Operations.

More recently, Montello was Head of Business Development at Blokur, prior to joining Audio Network as Head of Operations in 2021. In 2011, she founded and continues to serve as CEO of VoiceBox Consulting, and is also co-Founder and current Director of #remarQabl, an electronic music record label championing upcoming female, LGBTQ+ and ethnically diverse talent.

“Silvia has established herself as a powerful voice in the electronic music industry throughout her impressive career along with a proven track record of establishing and growing companies to their full potential,” said Ben Turner and Kurosh Nasseri, co-Founders and Chairs of AFEM. “From the moment she joined AFEM as a committee member in 2019, the organisation benefited from her insightful contribution.”

Marshall has led AFEM for four years and will continue consulting for the organization alongside other projects within electronic music.
