Pieter van Rijn
CEO – FUGA The Netherlands
Pieter van Rijn is CEO of FUGA, an industry-leading technology and services company for international rightsholders.
As technology continues to lead a wave of disintermediation, creating new efficiencies, reordering relationships and shifting market paradigms, Pieter regards change as the only constant in the business. FUGA is committed to keeping its clients one step ahead in an industry in continual flux.
Pieter also understands that labels and distributors are increasingly demanding a broader suite of services; looking to unify and simplify distribution, rights and royalty accounting workflows to save time and reduce processing errors. Developing flexible and adaptable technology with leading labels, FUGA’s sole role is to provide clients with the tools they require to run their changing businesses more efficiently.
Taking up the CEO position in May 2014, Pieter’s vision leverages FUGA’s tech and music expertise and is resonating with clients’ needs. Previously a board level management consultant at media consultancy Three Rivers, he was active in the media & entertainment industry in the area of strategy, corporate restructuring and M&A. His clients included Talpa Media Holding, Modern Times Group, ProSiebenSat.1 and The Dutch Public Broadcasting Organization.
Before this, Pieter acted as a Senior Project Manager for International Operations/M&A at global TV production company Endemol. A singer-songwriter, once signed to Sony Music, Pieter is still active as a songwriter in his rare spare time, published by Downtown Music. Pieter holds an MScBA at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam.
