Who we are
Behind ChartsMasters.org stands a highly dedicated team. Let us tell you who we are and who does what at ChartMasters.
Role: Executive Support
Favorite Artist: The Beatles
Estimating album sales involves an awful lot of sources and requires many, many hours. The more you structure them, the better your results will get. Al role is to milk more efficiently all chart-related files we collected through the years, transforming raw data into exploitable and relevant information.
Name: Anthony Blanchard
Role: CTO & VP Streaming
Favorite Artist: Led Zeppelin
The impact of Anthony has been immense on Chartmasters. He has automated plenty of tasks in background to improve both our efficiency and our reliability. All Excel screenshots available on articles are generated by his macros. Anthony leads the streaming section, collecting all data from Spotify and YouTube, he also enables the application of the CSPC formula by setting track lists of every compilation or live album of artists studied. Last but not least, he is our Data Manager, carefully storing every needed figure to handle the Data Collector and publish related articles.
Name: Guillaume Vieira / MJD
Favorite Artist: Damien Saez
Founder and webmaster of Chartmasters, tasks Guillaume lead include estimates of album sales and digital sales plus the writing of articles. He cross-checks and merges the information coming from remaining members to publish the final versions of articles too while also administrating both Twitter and Facebook accounts of Chartmasters.org. Additionally, he coordinates all contributors of the website.
Name: Hernán Lopez
Role: VP Physical Singles & Music Videos
Favorite Artist: Queen
Hernán has been contributing to Chartmasters almost from its beginning. He is in charge of estimates of all physical singles and music videos of all artists. In addition, Hernán also greatly assists as an expert on the Latin American market.
Role: VP Monster sellers
Favorite Artist: Led Zeppelin
Even with Guillaume, Hernan and Anthony actively working on it, publishing articles of monster sellers is always an extensive task. As a result, we still haven’t tried Frank Sinatra who will require a titanic work. Martin is a Rock fan. Coupled with his interest for accuracy and charts & sales, he aims to complete researches on all major sellers. He joined us on that mission to prevent articles on these artists from freezing the website for too long!
From: Hong Kong
Favorite Artist: Mariah Carey
One of our first dedicated readers, Raffi is now part of our team. For many months he was always the first one commenting all articles with very detailed messages. Not to mention he was the first to point out every typo, even the less obvious ones. His interest in all artists, his understanding of CSPC’s mechanics and his ability to explain nicely everything does wonders in the comments section. He answers various comments, acting as our spokesman. Feel free to ask for detailed information as he can access all our Excel sheets when needed!
Name: Stephen James
Role: VP Update – Divas
Favorite Artist: Britney Spears
His highly-educated comments on Spears’ articles have made Stephen one of our well-known readers. Considering how many relevant artists are still missing on our CSPC studies, the already published content is rarely updated in spite of your requests. To make up for this issue, Stephen stepped in to update articles on Divas / Pop Culture stars on a much more regular basis!
Name: Thomas Christiansen
Role: VP Update – Classic Rock
Favorite Artist: AC/DC
Known for many years online as Dane, the dedication of Thomas to collect information about artists with a long-lasting appeal is impressive. While Stephen does his best to answer the huge demand for updates on divas, legendary Rock stars who sold mind-blowing quantities of records are equally important. As a fan of the genre himself, Thomas takes care of these updates. Moreover, he can also take the lead on writing some of the articles.
