Congratulations to Durham College (DC) Music Business Management graduate, Kase de Jonge, on his 2014 Cyril Devereux Award from The Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency Ltd. (CMRRA).
The award, named in honour of CMRRA’s first general manager, has been given annually since 2001 to an employee who exhibits excellence in all aspects of her/his position including impeccable work quality and productivity, exemplary client service, professionalism and team spirit.
“The MBM program was fundamental in the success that I have achieved so far in my career,” said de Jonge. “The program covers so many aspects of the music industry that it truly prepares students for the ‘real world.’”
De Jonge, who graduated from DC in 2008, has worked with CMRRA since late 2009, when he was hired to be part of their major label licensing team. Since then, he has proven himself as an expert in royalty analysis and helps the company identify and release royalties owned to CMRRA clients.
