Andreas Katsambas (President & COO - Chartmetric)

Andreas Katsambas founded The End Records, an independent record label, shortly after college. He signed and developed multiple successful artists (including Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductees The Zombies) during that period until BMG acquired the company in 2016. Andreas then joined BMG as Senior VP to oversee all international releases for North America. Later as Executive VP, he led BMG's development in Latin America and Canada, overseeing 30 releases achieving diamond (first ever for BMG), platinum or gold status.

During the pandemic, he completed his Executive studies (General Management Program) at Harvard Business School where he received the distinction of Class Secretary and HBS Ambassador, both of which are lifetime roles. In June of 2021, he joined Chartmetric, a data analytics music company, in the role of President & COO to oversee the strategy, marketing, HR and operations functions.
