Steve Ellis

Steve Ellis is CEO and Co-founder of WhoSay, a digital entertainment publication built by and with over 1600 celebrities – for their biggest fans around the world. WhoSay also acts as the leading personal media management platform for high profile film, television and sports personalities.

Steve has a history of empowering artists to participate more fairly in the value they create with their content via the use of technology and digital networks.

Previously, he was founder and CEO of Pump Audio, a music licensing marketplace that connected production and agency buyers in television and advertising with a community of independent musicians so they could easily select and license music for their audio-visual programming and commercials. Musicians earned money from the use of their music in TV and advertising, but remained owner of all the rights to their work.

Pump Audio was sold to Getty Images in 2007 and is now the Getty Images Music Division.

Prior to starting Pump, Steve was an active musician who signed recording contracts with independent and major labels. He came to the US from the UK in 1988 to attend the Wharton School of Business, where he earned a BSC in Economics and Management.
