Emily Weber is the vice president/head of synch for the Los Angeles–based indie publisher Position Music. Weber is responsible for building and overseeing the nine-person synch team, which is responsible for exploiting Position Music’s repertoire in advertising, film, television, trailers, and video games worldwide.
Weber joined Position Music in 2010 and has been instrumental in expanding Position Music’s movie trailer, TV promo, and international advertising business. She has done A&R or produced over 30 albums made for movie trailers. Over her 15-plus years of pitching music, she has become a trusted source for music supervisors, editors/producers, and creative directors throughout the industry.
After finishing Berklee College of Music as a performance/contemporary writing and production major (saxophone) in 1997, and after a few years as a working musician, Weber began her synch-licensing career in 2003 at RipTide Music, building their artist roster and TV/film department. In 2008, she joined Immediate Music as director of operations. In 2010, Weber joined Position Music, and during her tenure the company has grown its revenue by over 800 percent and expanded its sales staff from one (just her) to a team of nine.
