LyricFind announces Will Mills as Chief Revenue Officer and opens new London office to extend leadership and expansion into Europe and Asia.

LyricFind, the World’s Leader in B2B Lyric Licensing, is expanding further into Europe, and announcing Will Mills will be joining the company as Chief Revenue Officer, based in London. With existing major partners like Deezer, Amazon, HTC and Microsoft, LyricFind is now expanding rapidly worldwide and is opening an office in London to deepen this expansion into Europe and Asia Pacific.

Heading this next phase of growth is digital music veteran Will Mills. Mills joins LyricFind from Shazam where he was the most senior music executive there for a decade, most recently as VP Music & Content. During his tenure he was responsible for majority of Shazam’s deals with the global music industry, and led the teams that delivered content ingestion, editorial content, promotions and many other business development initiatives that were critical in Shazam’s massive growth and leadership.

“I’m hugely excited to be joining LyricFind at this exciting point in it’s history and building on the existing great foundations.” said Mills, “There are many welcome similarities to LyricFind as to when I joined Shazam; namely, market leadership in the B2B space, roughly the same sized team and enormous room for growth. I look forward to using my experience to help grow LyricFind with our many partners and new partners worldwide.”

“We’re very excited to have Will joining the LyricFind team.” said Darryl Ballantyne, LyricFind’s CEO. “Having worked with Will for years during his time at Shazam, we’ve always known him to be a smart and highly effective executive, and we couldn’t think of anyone better to lead our continued global expansion.”

Will has co-invented patented technology around Media/Lyric synchronization at Shazam and will be responsible for leading the team on all global business development and sales at LyricFind. Andrew Stess, LyricFind’s previous Chief Revenue Officer, will be remaining on LyricFind’s Board of Directors and also on the Business Development team on the West Coast.
