Mike Knobloch

President of Music & Publishing, NBCUniversal

Mike Knobloch's career as President of Music and Publishing at NBCUniversal is a testament to his immense talent and dedication in the entertainment industry. With over twenty-five years of experience, Knobloch's work as a GRAMMY-nominated Music Supervisor and Producer has left a lasting impact, with four of the top-ten highest-grossing films of all time, such as Jurassic World, Furious 7, Titanic, and Avatar, under his supervision.

As a key figure at Universal, Knobloch has overseen the music for highly popular franchises like Fast & Furious, Pitch Perfect, Despicable Me, and Fifty Shades of Grey. He has also contributed to critically acclaimed projects like Illumination's Sing franchise, Dr. Seuss' The Grinch, and The Secret Life of Pets films, among others. His involvement in crafting the iconic soundtracks for movies like Furious 7's "See You Again" and Despicable Me 2's global phenomenon "Happy" earned RIAA-certified Diamond status for both songs.

Knobloch's dedication to fostering representation in music for visual media led to the creation of Universal's Composer Diversity Initiative in 2018, which focuses on developing talent from underrepresented groups in the industry. As a result of this initiative, the first woman ever scored a feature film for DreamWorks Animation.

Before his time at Universal, Knobloch made significant contributions as the Executive Vice President of Film Music at 20th Century Fox, working on a wide array of well-known films. He is a member of prestigious industry organizations like the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, The Recording Academy / GRAMMYs, and MusiCares.

Beyond his professional achievements, Knobloch remains deeply involved in the education sector, serving on advisory committees at Northwestern University and supporting programs like Sound Arts and Industries and Education Through Music LA. His commitment to fostering talent and championing diversity makes him a notable figure in the music and film industry.
