Warner/Chappell taps Beuschel as A&R director

Warner/Chappell Music, the global publishing arm of Warner Music Group Corp., has appointed Ryan Beuschel to artist and repertoire director.

Beuschel (pictured) will provide A&R resources and creative support across the publisher’s roster and catalog, and assist in the discovery of new talent and development of existing songwriters.

Beuschel comes to Warner/Chappell from ASCAP, where he spent the last four years as associate director of membership for the licensing entity’s Nashville branch. He will report to Ben Vaughn, Warner/Chappell Nashville executive vice president.

“Ryan understands how to work with talent, as demonstrated through his years helping grow the careers of songwriters at ASCAP and artists at Universal, and we look forward to the excellent service he’s capable of providing to our writers," Vaughn said in a release.

During his time at ASCAP, Beuschel co-founded the ASCAP GPS Project, which helps Nashville’s unsigned writers navigate the city’s publishing community.

Prior to working at ASCAP, Beuschel served as A&R manager at Universal Music Group.

Beuschel holds a degree in management and finance from Hope College.
