Ingrooves Music Group, a world leader in music distribution, marketing and technology, has named Luca Stante as Country Manager of Ingrooves Italy, expanding the company’s presence into this important music market. The move reflects Ingrooves’ growing global footprint after recently opening offices in Amsterdam, Brazil, Denmark, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, and Turkey, and increasing its presence in Australia/New Zealand and Sweden.
“As we continue our strategic global expansion, we are focused on working with the most important independent labels and artists in the world,” said Bob Roback, CEO of Ingrooves Music Group. “Luca is a highly respected industry veteran who is already proving to be an invaluable part of our global team helping us achieve this goal in Italy. He brings extensive knowledge of the music market in Italy and incredibly strong relationships throughout the industry. He’s the perfect executive to lead our efforts in Italy.”
Mr. Stante previously held the dual roles of CEO and Managing Director of Believe Italy and Managing Director of Tunecore Italy. In total, he spent nearly 15 years at Believe, also leading the company’s efforts in Turkey and Greece for several years. He began his career in 1998 at Warner Music Group.
“It was easy to decide to come to Ingrooves, the most advanced digital distributor in the world,” said Stante. “With the backing of Universal Music Group and the independence to quickly react to changing market conditions, I believe Ingrooves has the competitive advantages to ensure our partners achieve the best growth available in the market.”
