André de Raaff
A veteran in the international music business with an outstanding track record. At the age of 25, André took the role of managing director at Warner Publishing Netherlands, followed by a ten-year-period as President of Arcade, Europe’s largest independent record and publishing company. André founded CTM in 2000 to become one of the most successful independent entertainment music companies. CTM is one of the first power houses that started to buy music rights in 2008 already. First with the Dutch pension fund ABP, but later also with Shamrock Capital. Due to CTM’s experience and knowledge a new strategic partnership with Dallas based Outlander was concluded in 2021, with the aim to invest one billion dollars during the next 5 years in both publishing and master rights, making CTM Publishing one of the most cutting edge and highly profiled independent publishers around the globe.
