The Team

As a member led and music focused organization, the senior leadership and our entire team is here only to serve the needs of our members and support the artistry of their music. Merlin has offices in London, New York, and Tokyo, but we think locally, regionally, and globally to add value to our members.

The Board

The Merlin Board* is from the membership and then voted onto the Board by the membership—that means the oversight of Merlin is by the very people who are most vested in our future. Our Board is equally split between North America, Europe and Rest of World. This makes the Merlin Board a true reflection of the diversity and global representation from our community.
