Fall 2003 Whiting-Turner Business and Entrepreneurial Lecture Series features Chief Technology Officer for Sony Music Entertainment
On Thursday, November 6, 2003, at 5:00 p.m. in Room 1202-Glenn L. Martin Hall, Philip T. Wiser, Sony Music Entertainment's chief technology officer and senior vice president for digital services, will be the second speaker for the Fall Series of the Whiting-Turner Lecture Series. His topic, "Facing the Music: An Inside Look at the Dramatic Changes Facing the Global Music Industry" reflects the theme for the year's lectures, "Making the Most of Change and Opportunity."
Wiser, as chief technical officer of Sony Music Entertainment (SME), oversees the direction of the company’s digital media initiatives, including electronic music distribution (EMD) systems and developing and implementing new digital media technologies. Prior to joining SME, Wiser served as director and chief technology officer of Liquid Audio, where he pioneered one of the first commercially released digital rights management and EMD systems.
Wiser graduated summa cum laude from Maryland, where he earned a B.S. in electrical engineering. He received a master's degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University. Today, the Clark School is fortunate to have his ongoing advice as a member of the Advisory Council for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
For nine years, the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company has sponsored the Business and Entrepreneurial Lecture Series to provide our academic community with a real-life perspective on the issues that are critical to success in business today.
