Audiam is the streaming mechanical royalties collection agency that Canadian collecting society Socan acquired in 2016, keeping its founder Jeff Price on to lead it.
Now he has left the company abruptly, with Socan’s announcement making it clear (“Socan makes Audiam leadership change”) that it was the company’s decision rather than Price’s.
COO Jeff King will take on Price’s CEO duties, with Socan’s interim CEO Jennifer Brown promising “Audiam’s business will continue without change”.
Is this change amicable? Seems not.
