Panelists

Ryan Fitch began his career at advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi after graduating from Indiana University, where he received a B.A. in jazz performance with an emphasis in percussion. Fitch's passions for music, technology, and connecting with audiences dovetailed perfectly at Saatchi & Saatchi, where he spent ten years as one of their music producers. Known for his uncanny ability to find that “perfect song” for brands big and small, he’s mastered the craft of integrating music into TV, radio, and interactive campaigns. Currently, he is the vice president of Sync Licensing and Brand Partnerships at MAC Presents, where he continues to innovate and amplify the different ways that music can transform a brand or marketing campaign.

Ned Sedlak started his career in music in the copyright department at Warner/Chappell. After two years, he moved into A&R administration at Warner Brothers Records. After getting enough L.A. sunshine, he moved to New York to work in marketing for tinyOGRE Entertainment and later Glassnote Records. He is currently the director of marketing for Megaforce Records/MRI Distribution.

Kiran Gandhi plays drums and spent 2013 touring internationally with artist M.I.A. She graduated from Georgetown University in 2011 with a double major in mathematics and political science and used her passion for math and music to serve as Interscope Records’s first data analyst from 2011 to 2013. She is currently at Harvard pursuing her MBA. She believes that the music industry is experiencing a period that could benefit from inspiration from other successful industries, and hopes to use theories and ideas from school to inspire new ideas in the music space.

Javier Piñol is the music director for beIN Sports, the international sports network. As a musician he’s released two albums and played and recorded with several other artists. He has produced music for commercials and films since 2004 and created the soundtrack to the movie Una Flor En Recepcion that was nominated for a Goya award in 2011. He is also cofounder of MUS XXI, the first national musicians cooperative in Spain. With more than eight years of experience in music departments as a director, musician, or supervisor, he has worked with top leading brands in Europe and the United States. Piñol is a strong believer in the power of music as a catalyzer for connecting brands with people.
