Benjy Grinberg

Founder & President,
Rostrum Records
Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Benjy Grinberg is the Founder and President of Rostrum Records, a Pittsburgh-based independent label and management company with a diverse roster including Grammy Award nominee Wiz Khalifa, Leon Thomas, Vali, Mac Miller, Donora, Boaz and Teammate.

Grinberg started the company in 2003 from his apartment, and has grown Rostrum into one of the most successful independent music companies in the industry. Due to its innovative digital savvy, Rostrum has helped formulate a new and much needed model for independent labels. In 2011, Rostrum and Mac Miller made history with "Blue Slide Park," which was the first independent album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart since 1995 (and only the 2nd album in history to do so), selling 144,000 copies in its first week.

Grinberg is a voting member of the NYC chapter of NARAS (Grammys). He is one of Billboard Magazine's "40 Under 40" and Source Magazine's "Power 30."
