Dressler, Vidich Join MusicNet Board

Online music-content aggregator MusicNet added some Time Warner Inc. DNA to its leadership, appointing Fred Dressler and Paul Vidich to its board of directors.

Dressler is executive vice president of programming for Time Warner Cable, while Vidich is a former Time Warner Music executive who most recently served as an advisor to AOL.

They will join Jon Grabel, Joseph Saviano and MusicNet CEO Alan McGlade on the board for the company, a wholly owned subsidiary of New York-based private-equity firm Baker Capital.

MusicNet offers content and systems to service providers to create branded music-download services for Internet and mobile-phone users.

“Since its inception, MusicNet has been a pioneer and played an integral role in developing the digital-music marketplace,” Dressler said in a release. “I am very pleased to join the company’s board as it continues to expand upon the breadth of its digital entertainment services and portfolio of renowned global distribution partners.”
