Capitol Christian Music Group (CCMG), Chairman & CEO of  Peter York announces he will retire from the company on March 31, marking the end of a singular 50-year career in the music business that included 37 years in leadership roles at CCMG. York’s long-planned retirement follows last year’s promotion of Brad O’Donnell and Hudson Plachy to Co-Presidents of CCMG and completes a succession plan for the company that was put into effect six years ago. York will remain in an advisory role to O’Donnell and Plachy throughout 2020.

CCMG is the domestic and global leader in Faith-based music, holding a 40% market share in the U.S. and being named Billboard Magazine’s #1 Christian record label in 2019. Under York’s leadership, 2018 and 2019 have been the highest performing years in the company’s history. CCMG has earned 17 consecutive ASCAP Christian Music Publisher of the Year awards and garnered 40 Grammys in the last decade, alone.

York said, “I’ve been privileged to be a part of CCMG and its many evolutions over the last 37 years. I’ve worked with the absolute best music business leaders, the most dedicated team and with immensely gifted artists and songwriters along the way. It’s been more than I could have ever imagined. I’m humbled and grateful for the countless opportunities I’ve been given and I’m overwhelmed by the impact our music has had in the lives of consumers around the world. I’d like to thank Steve Barnett for all of his support over these past seven years and for his confidence in our succession plan and the next generation of leadership for CCMG.”
