Loton, Corp.’s subsidiary LiveXLive, a live music video streaming network, has announced the appointment of music industry veteran Jerry Gold as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
Gold joined LiveXLive in March 2017 as the Strategic Financial Advisor to the Chairman. A music and entertainment executive for the past 37 years, he served as the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Warner Music Group for nearly a decade. In addition to his responsibilities as Warner Music’s CFO, he extended his focus to strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures. In addition, Gold also managed Warner Music’s investment in Columbia House, a direct marketing joint venture with Sony Music, and was a member of the Board of Directors.
“Jerry brings tremendous experience, an unparalleled network and financial expertise to LiveXLive, and we are thrilled that he has joined full-time,” said Rob Ellin, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The live music streaming industry is massive and fragmented. Jerry’s experience, along with other music industry luminaries on our team such as Phil Quartararo, the former CEO of Virgin Records, Warner Bros Records and EMI, will be invaluable to LiveXLive as we execute on our intent to be a consolidator in the space. Gold was also a partner at Ernst & Young for 12 years and led the firm’s media and entertainment practice where he was responsible for clients like Time Warner, PolyGram, Boston Ventures and Silver Screen Partners.
“LiveXLive is reinvigorating the music business by filling the gap between live and accessible music experiences, with a sharp focus on mobile. Having spent much of my career in the global media and entertainment industry, I understand the passion, and increasing demand, for live music and am excited to join the movement,” said Gold.
