Canadian Music Week has announced that Danya Dixon has been promoted to the role of Chief Executive Officer of the organization, effective immediately.
She has been with CMW for 11 years, most recently serving as vice-president of programming. Her father, Neill Dixon, is the co-founder of the long-running CMW and remains as president.
In 2016, Dixon turned her skills to the creation of the hugely successful O’Cannabiz Conference & Expo in Toronto and shepherded the project as it expanded into Vancouver and Niagara Falls. Her efforts in the evolving cannabis industry connect the worlds of politics, law, commerce, and culture.
The 38th Annual Canadian Music Week will return to Toronto May 19 – 23, 2020.
