Building on over twenty years of industry experience, he built the company’s infrastructure, established its administration systems, and developed the international network that oversees Reservoir’s copyrights to this day. Under his direction, Reservoir has grown to represent over 1000 songwriters and over 110,000 compositions worldwide, while maintaining a regular Top 10 U.S. Market Share. The company was named Publisher of the Year at Music Business Worldwide’s The A&R Awards and was honored with AIMP’s NY Indie Award, in addition to celebrating 2019 Grammy wins for Song and Record of the Year, among other accolades. Prior to his time at Reservoir, Rell was Vice President at TVT Records and TVT Music Publishing, where he worked with artists including Nine Inch Nails, Lil Jon, Snoop Dogg, Scott Storch, and Pitbull. In addition to serving on the board for AIMP’s New York Chapter, Rell was appointed to the NMPA’s Operations Advisory Committee for the Mechanical Licensing Collective and he also serves on the board of the Canadian Music Publishers Association.
