Matt Gudinski Assumes Role Of CEO Mushroom Group

Mushroom Group today announced that Matt Gudinski will assume the role of CEO of the Mushroom Group, effective immediately.

Matt moves into the role following the sudden passing of his father, Michael Gudinski, on March 2 this year.

Matt most recently held the role of Executive Director, Mushroom Group from 2013. In the eight years following, Matt and Michael worked side by side at the helm of Australia’s most powerful independent entertainment group, overseeing over 250 employees and two dozen companies.

Formed in 1972, the Mushroom Group encompasses touring and events, record labels and artist services, publishing, merchandising, booking agencies, film and television production, talent management, venues, creative services and a brand agency.

In 2013 Matt spearheaded a public relaunch of the Group where he was named as Michael’s successor.

Matt Gudinski said “This isn’t a role that I expected to assume yet, but I am determined to honour the great legacy my father left. Mushroom Group is in its strongest position ever and as we fast approach our 50th year I know that our incredibly talented Mushroom family will help me deliver the vision Dad and I had for the next 50 years of our business.”

While Matt was literally born into the business, he officially joined Mushroom Group in 2003 at age 17. Since then, he has been hands on with all aspects of the Group, helping grow its label and touring divisions while overseeing change in music publishing and artist management amongst many other things, driving Mushroom’s evolution, diversification and vision to be a global leader.
