December 31, 2021 – Rob Stringer, Chairman, Sony Music Group, has received the Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) honour by Queen Elizabeth II for his Service to the Music Industry and philanthropic endeavors.
The CBE is one of the highest ranking Order of the British Empire awards and it is bestowed upon a select few who have shown exceptional service to their industry and community. The Queen’s New Year’s honours are only given out once a year to people across a range of sectors.
Stringer is responsible for leading the overall global activities of the world’s largest music publishing company and second largest recorded music company which is home to many of the world’s most accomplished international superstars and local artists, as well as a vast catalog of some of the most popular and important recordings in history.
In 2021, Stringer implemented Artists and Songwriters Forward, unprecedented programs in the entertainment industry that create more earnings opportunities for artists and songwriters. The programs also prioritize health and wellness support for creators around the world.
In 2020, he was instrumental in the launch of Sony Corp’s USD$100 million Social Justice Fund to support social justice and anti-racist initiatives around the world which has already led actions to support long-term change in the entertainment industry and society at large.
Stringer also serves as an Officer of Sony Corp. as the Senior Executive in charge of the Music Business.
Born at Royal Air Force Halton, he grew up in Aylesbury and attended Goldsmiths College, University of London where he gained a BA Honours in Sociology in 1984 and was awarded an honorary fellowship in 2010.
