Mark Spier / Memory Lane Music Group

Mark Spier is currently the third generation President of Memory Lane Music Group, which was founded by his grandfather.  Larry Spier Music (Memory Lane’s ASCAP entity) has been a proud member of ASCAP since 1921. Mark brings with him a unique mix of skills and expertise, having experience in music publishing, technology, and finance. 

Since taking leadership of the business in 2003, Memory Lane’s catalog has more than doubled with additions of new music, including pop standards and contemporary hits. In his time at the company, Mark has overseen MLMG’s songs covered and sampled by a staggering number of the industry’s elite recording artists.
Memory Lane has recently been added to the NMPA’s “Top 100” music publishers list.  Mark is also on the Board of Directors of the NY chapter of AIMP since 2015.  In addition to serving as President of MLMG, and its subsidiaries, Scion Music, and Larry Spier Music, Mark is also president of Royalty Solution’s Corp.  The company was founded in 2009, to provide comprehensive and accurate royalty processing and accounting to record labels and music publishers.  
Mark graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science, and received an MBA from Columbia University. He went on to work for IBM and then become a VP at Credit Suisse before beginning his tenure at Memory Lane. Mark lives on Long Island with his wife Lori. They spend most of their spare time shuttling their two boys, Matthew and Ben, between various sports practices.
