Rob Stringer, 2017

Rob Stringer, global CEO of Sony Music Entertainment, tonight became the 2017 recipient of the highly prestigious Music Industry Trusts Award. Stringer, one of the most well-regarded, respected and successful executives in the worldwide music business, joined the ranks of previous honourees including Roger Daltrey CBE, Sir Elton John & Bernie Taupin, Sir George Martin, Simon Cowell, Michael Eavis CBE and Annie Lennox OBE.

In a London ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, hosted by BBC radio and television personality Jo Whiley, Nicky Wire of Manic Street Preachers – an artist and band Stringer signed in 1991 as they were starting out – presented Rob with the award. During the evening, the audience enjoyed performances by Harry Styles, Jeff Lynne’s ELO, George Ezra and Camila Cabello, all chart-topping artists who have worked with the executive during his career.
