In BMI’s fast-paced Nashville Writer/Publisher Relations department, two key players are being recognized for their great work and consistent efforts on behalf of BMI’s songwriters and publishers. Mark Mason and Bradley Collins have both recently been promoted, said Jody Williams, Vice President, Writer/Publisher Relations. For Williams, the promotions are much deserved.
“BMI is lucky to have two such engaged and forward-thinking Writer/Publisher executives on our Nashville team,” Williams said. “Mark Mason consistently creates win-win opportunities for BMI songwriters by providing showcase opportunities, as well as through strategic partnerships he develops. Bradley Collins is an amazing talent scout, organizational point person and problem solver. Mason and Collins have a unique ability to amplify songwriters’ talents and mentor them, without losing sight of what makes a writer special.”
Previously a Senior Director, Mark Mason was promoted to Executive Director, Writer/Publisher Relations. Beginning his career at RCA, he joined BMI in 1995 as Associate Director and assumed increasing levels of responsibility for developing and coordinating showcases and events in Nashville and throughout the Southern region.
Bradley Collins has been promoted from Director to Senior Director, Writer/Publisher Relations. Collins joined BMI in 2002 from Acuff-Rose Music Publishing, where he worked with the creative staff in administering the catalogue. Among his responsibilities at BMI are coordinating writer events throughout the industry, creating opportunities for BMI writers and publishers, and identifying new sources of revenue and exposure for emerging artists.
“Over the past several years, it has been BMI’s goal to provide excellent service and guidance to Nashville’s diverse and vibrant music community,” Williams added. “Mark and Bradley’s talent and hard work have helped make that goal a reality, and I am excited to see their efforts acknowledged.”
