Danielle Aguirre
Executive VP/General Counsel, National Music Publishers’ Association

Aguirre shared recognition as Billboard’s Women in Music Co-Executive of the Year in 2018 with Jacqueline Charlesworth, Susan Genco and Dina LaPolt for their support of the Music Modernization Act. This past year she played a role in some of the NMPA’s “largest settlements to date” with Roblox and Twitch, which ensured proper compensation for songwriters and publishers on these platforms. Aguirre, 44, and the NMPA set the standard for licensing songs in gaming and social media. “These deals have brought not only value to the music publishing industry,” she says, “but also helped develop new relationships and partnerships between publishers and some of these fast-growing platforms.”
