Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) President and Chief Executive Officer Del Bryant announced today his decision to retire in June 2014, starting an orderly leadership transition over the next 14 months. Following the executive transition, he will continue to be engaged as a consultant for the company. Bryant's decision to retire will bring to a close a remarkable career of over 40 years of continuous service to the company, its songwriters and publishers.

Bryant is widely recognized and respected as one of the most influential leaders of the music industry. He is the son of Nashville's first professional songwriters, the late Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, who penned internationals standards such as "Bye Bye Love", "All I Have To Do Is Dream", "Wake Up Little Susie", "Love Hurts" and the state song of Tennessee "Rocky Top". Bryant himself penned a Top 5 country hit in 1978. Bryant and the BMI team represent over 7.5 million musical works across all genres of music and 600,000 affiliates including Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, will.i.am, Adele, Rihanna, Carrie Underwood, A$AP Rocky, Jack White, Pitbull, Shakira, Mariah Carey, Carlos Santana, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, The Band Perry, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Michael Bolton, Barry Manilow, John Williams, Paul Simon, Gloria Estefan and more.

"I've been privileged to lead this company I love, one of the world's greatest music companies," Bryant said. "I began my career with BMI in 1972 and after four decades with the company and 10 years as CEO, I'm excited to be moving back to my hometown of Nashville where my family and I will build a farm on beautiful land purchased by my folks with money earned from their BMI catalog. I look forward to working with the board during the transition period, and to supporting the company as a consultant after retiring as CEO."

Susan Davenport Austin, BMI Chairman of the Board stated, "Del is a tremendous team builder and leader. His stewardship has helped build BMI into a global brand and the premier music rights organization. His passion for this industry and for the songwriting community we serve has been evident throughout his substantial tenure, both in the services and support BMI offers its constituents and in the relationships he has built around the world. Del's expertise is invaluable and we are thrilled that he will continue to be a part of the BMI family."

The board of directors has formed a committee to choose Bryant's successor.
