Re:Sound Hires Denis Dinsmore as New VP of Finance & Administration

Re:Sound has announced the hiring of Denis Dinsmore as its new vice president of finance and administration. Re:Sound is the Canadian performing rights organization representing performing artists and record companies.

“Denis joins Re:Sound at an exciting time – we launched a new strategic plan earlier this year, and the organization is in the midst of several significant enterprise wide projects,” says Lou Ragagnin, Re:Sound’s CEO and president. “I have every confidence that Denis’ strong credentials, business acumen, and understanding of corporate governance and accountability will serve the organization and the rights holders we represent, extremely well.”

Dinsmore’s extensive experience spans multiple sectors, including 10 years in the music and entertainment industry at ole Media Management (now Anthem Entertainment Group), where he was the VP of finance. Most recently, he served as VP of finance at Comark Holdings Inc., which is known for retail banners Ricki’s, Cleo, and Bootlegger.

“I’m excited to return to the music industry,” says Dinsmore. “Re:Sound does important work and neighbouring rights royalties are a vital revenue stream for performers and labels. I’m looking forward to working with the Re:Sound team and our member organizations.”

Dinsmore is a certified professional accountant (CPA, CMA) and has a bachelor of commerce degree from the University of Guelph.

In the coming weeks, he will work (virtually) alongside Clement Wong, who retires as VP of finance later this month after 21 years of service.
