Wendy Goldstein, co-president of Republic Records, will receive the inaugural Seymour Stein – Global A&R Award on March 20, 2024, during a gala dinner on the final night of the four-day MUSEXPO conference. The conference, a leading showcase and networking event for the global music industry, will be held at Castaway, a restaurant and event space in Burbank, Calif., from March 17–20, 2024.

The Seymour Stein – Global A&R Award will celebrate excellence in A&R worldwide, and the spirit of discovery in music. This year’s inaugural award will be presented in association with Richard Gottherer, Stein’s longtime friend and co-founder of Sire Records, and Stein’s daughter Mandy Stein. Seymour Stein died in April at age 80.


Sat Bisla, president & founder of A&R Worldwide and MUSEXPO, stated, “Wendy Goldstein’s career is a testament to her unwavering commitment to the art of A&R and her exceptional talent for identifying and developing artists who shape the music industry and impact global pop culture. Wendy’s unique abilities, instincts and musical foresight make her truly remarkable and impactful as an A&R afficionado. She is the embodiment of the spirit of Seymour Stein’s legacy.”

Goldstein, who will be celebrating 30 years in A&R next year, has had a role in the careers of such artists as The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Jonas Brothers, John Legend, Nicki Minaj and Anitta. Goldstein joined Republic Records in 2009, initially as an A&R consultant, later assuming the role of senior vice president of A&R in 2011. In 2014, she was appointed executive vice president and head of A&R and in 2021 she was named co-president alongside Jim Roppo.

Her journey in the music business began as an assistant in the A&R department of Epic Records, followed by stints at Geffen Records and Priority Records/Capitol where she orchestrated a label deal with Disturbing The Peace.

Stein’s signings — including Madonna, Talking Heads, The Ramones, The Pretenders, Depeche Mode and The Cure — have left an indelible mark on the music landscape. His dedication to the art of A&R made him a legendary figure in the music industry. This award seeks to celebrate and perpetuate his legacy.

Stein received the Ahmet Ertegun Award at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. In 2012, he received Billboard’s Icon Award at MIDEM. In 2018, he received a trustees award from the Recording Academy (alongside composer John Williams and the late concert promoter Bill Graham).
