Chairman & CEO, Recording Industry Association of America
In his more than 20 years at RIAA, Glazier has played a vital role in the music industry’s transition to streaming and “anywhere, anytime” access to music.
Before joining RIAA, Glazier served as Chief Counsel for Intellectual Property to the Judiciary Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. In his career in and out of government, Glazier has worked on every major U.S. copyright bill considered in the past three decades from the Digital Performance Right in Sound Recordings Act of 1995 to the Music Modernization Act of 2018, laying the foundation for the modern streaming economy that has strengthened and remade the music business for the 21st Century.
A native of Chicago, Glazier served as a Federal Judicial Law Clerk and practiced law at the firm Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg as an associate in commercial litigation. He graduated from Northwestern University and Vanderbilt Law School.
Named to Billboard’s Power 100 list of top music executives, Glazier serves as Chairman of the Board of RIAA, Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Musicians on Call, the charity that brings the healing power of music to the bedsides of patients in hospitals and are facilities, and serves on the Boards of IFPI, SoundExchange, and Leadership Music.
He and his wife, Carly, have two sons, ages 23 and 20 – one of them a songwriter, producer and musician himself.
