CTM becomes European partner of PULSE

One of the fastest growing music publishing companies in the US: PULSE, has signed an exclusive European sub-publishing deal with one of the fastest growing music publishing companies in Europe: CTM.
CEO and owner of CTM: André de Raaff, was CEO and co-owner of Imagem, which he sold successfully to Concord earlier this year.
 
Pulse enjoyed global successes in the past year with hits like:
Camila Cabello – “Havana” feat. Young Thug / Justin Bieber & BloodPop – “Friends” / French Montana – “Unforgettable” feat. Swae Lee / Maroon 5 – “What Lovers Do” feat SZA / Calvin Harris – “Feels” feat. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & BIG SEAN / Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee – “Despacito” (Justin Bieber Remix) / Sean Paul – “No Lie” feat. Dua Lipa / Niall Horan – “Slow Hands” / Harry Styles – “Sign of The Times”.
 
In a statement Scott Cutler, CEO of Pulse said: “Having worked closely with André for the last several years it was very obvious he would be the right partner to handle this expanded role. Multi-territory licensing has become increasingly important particularly given the platform that streaming services have given areas of repertoire that have not historically done as well in European markets. Having CTM at the helm in Europe, in cooperation with IMPEL for pan-European digital licensing and Mary Jo Mennella’s Music Asset Management for the US, puts us in the best position to secure the best result for our Writers.”
 
André de Raaff, together with CTM MD: Jitze de Raaff, said: “We have been looking after the publishing interests of Pulse in European markets like Scandinavia, Benelux and in the GSA territories in the past years already and because of this we have been following the enormous growth of quality and successes in the Pulse catalogues under the fantastic leadership of Scott and his partners and teams. We are happy that we have been able to contribute to their growth in the above territories, also because of the many synchs we have been able to obtain on well-known but also on lesser known copyrights. CTM is honoured that Pulse, together with Mary Jo, have decided to extend our relationship and also expand now for the whole of Europe, including UK and we are looking forward to continuing our success in Europe with their writers and copyrights also in the additional countries, whereby we will also focus heavily on increasing their income for online sales.”
