Dean Ormston

Chief Executive Officer

Dean has worked with APRA AMCOS for over 20 years across all key areas of the organisation. He has lead advocacy with Federal and State Governments for the recognition and support of creators’ rights and the potential of the local music industry as a key economic and cultural asset that drives exports and educational outcomes across the country.

Dean has coordinated and lead cross-sector advocacy relating to COVID-19, the economic contribution of the Australian music industry, the potential of tax-offsets in rebuilding a sustainable live music sector, and the moon-shot opportunity for Australia to become a net-exporter of music. Dean and APRA AMCOS are leading industry discussions in addressing gender equity, safety, diversity and inclusion in the Australian contemporary music industry.
