Mitch Glazier

Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)
Chairman and CEO

Mitch Glazier is Chairman and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the trade association representing the U.S.-based global entertainment companies responsible for creating, manufacturing, or distributing approximately 85 percent of the world’s recorded music. Since joining the RIAA, Glazier has passionately fought for a digital economy in the mutual best interest of the entire music community, from artists to fans to digital music services alike, and helped build the unprecedented coalition that mobilized to enact the Music Modernization Act (MMA).

For more than 20 years, Glazier has been at the forefront of building the new music ecosystem. As a senior House Judiciary Committee staffer, he helped pass pioneering legislation that paved the way for the streaming economy, including helping author the Digital Performance Right in Sound Recordings Act to assure that music creators are compensated for use of their music by digital partners. Glazier serves as Chairman of the Board of RIAA, Chairman of the Board of Musicians on Call, the charity that brings the healing power of music to the bedsides of patients in hospitals and health care facilities around the country, and serves on the Boards of IFPI, SoundExchange, and Leadership Music.
