Pepflow B.V. was founded by music industry veteran Frank Bruens, who with his 25 years of business know-how, forms the driving force of this venture, having held senior positions within leading international companies.
In the Benelux Bruens has had his hand in both creative as well as in operational roles. These included managing Bertelsmann’s multimedia giant’s music divisions (BMG Music Publishing, BMG Rights Management and BMG Talpa Music). Before this Frank learned the ropes in the Indie sector at Dureco and Strengholt (then a Joint Venture with the US Warner/Chappell Music).
In these roles Bruens was responsible for the exploitation & management of international copyrights. He was also instrumental in driving the careers of successful songwriters/artists, such as: 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor, Twenty 4 Seven, Total Touch, Kane, Nick & Simon, Within Temptation, Yellow Claw, Afrojack and Mr. Probz. More recent successes include: Martijn Konijnburg (Kygo’s “Firestone”), Matt Simons (“With You” and Catch & Release”) and Diggy Dex’s top 10 hit “Treur Niet (Ode Aan Het Leven)”.
Bruens has served as a Board Member of trade organisations Buma/Stemra and Buma Cultuur (formerly Conamus).
Pepflow B.V. specializes in the management of music rights, its talented creators and users of such rights.
