Staff spotlight

Catherine Giuliano - Director, OneMusic General Licensing

Years worked at APRA AMCOS:
I’ve worked for APRA AMCOS twice – 1st time from 1999 to 2002, 2nd time from 2008 to now. Therefore total of 15 years.

What do you love most about APRA AMCOS?
I love working with my tribe and for my tribe. I love the purpose of what APRA AMCOS do and the passion of the people that make up the organisation. I also love the fast pace and working in a highly dynamic environment surrounded by clever people.

What makes you happy at work?
Mostly my clever passionate staff. I’m also happy at those times when our message is understood by licensees and the general public of what we do and how important our role is for music creators. I must admit also that I’m happy hitting targets.

How has APRA AMCOS shaped your career?
APRA AMCOS in the 90s played a role (not the only role but a big role) in my ability to operate successfully outside the company in my career overseas with a publisher, in Australia working for the Government and also working at CAL. When I came back after acquiring experience, including life experience, I was employed by APRA AMCOS in positions of leadership. As I say to my staff, the skills you gain from being a good Licensing Rep means you can basically handle anything professionally and if you remain a team player, are empathetic whilst being results focused success is yours if you want it.

What was your main reason for wanting to join APRA AMCOS?
I was a TV Producer and was looking for a stable 9 to 5 job in the arts. That was the only driver. I’d never heard of APRA AMCOS at the time.

Describe your role at APRA AMCOS in one sentence:
I’m part of the OneMusic NZ client services team. I do a variety of administration tasks within the department, as well as administering and managing the NZ compliance program.

What is your favourite song on your playlist and why?
Cruise Control – Eskimos & Egypt remix, Headless Chickens. Flying Nun Records have recently released an extended reissue of Headless Chickens album Body Blow, originally released in 1991, and it’s bringing back all the nostalgic feels. I’m also excited to hear more from Chaii, loving her track Digebasse (Enough).

What’s the last gig you went to?
Red Hot Chili Peppers a couple of months ago. Seeing them live was on my bucket list as I’ve missed them previous times they’ve been to NZ, I wasn’t disappointed.

What’s the first gig you went to?
The first big concert I went to was Missy Elliot. I worked at a music store at the time and got free tickets, we left work early and travelled 5 hours from Gisborne to Auckland to catch the concert, we then drove all the way back to make it back for work the next morning. Oh to be 20 again!

My favourite music memory is…
There’s a few, but the one that comes to mind is an event called Synthony that I went to in 2017. The concept was a DJ, a handful of NZ vocalists and the Auckland Symphony Orchestra re-doing dance tracks from the 00’s (think Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim). It sounds crazy but it was one of the coolest music experiences, no one was sitting down!

Final thought
Music taste is super subjective, like what you want to like and don’t let anyone tell you it’s shit.
