Warner Music UK has announced two promotions within its senior management team, with Peter Breeden becoming Chief Operating Officer and Mel Fox becoming Chief Transformation Officer. Breeden will also retain his current role of Chief Financial Officer.
“At Warner Music UK, we’re committed to building a new kind of music company, for our artists, our people and our partners”, says Max Lousada. “Peter and Mel are helping us achieve our collective ambition by pioneering new practices, expanding our expertise, and working hard to deliver outstanding results”.
He continues: “Having dedicated his professional career to music, Peter is a wise, experienced and trusted advisor to me and our label heads, and he’ll do a tremendous job evolving our central operations so we’re even more responsive to the needs of our artists”.
On his new Chief Transformation Officer, Lousada went on: “Through her experiences in a wide range of industries, as well as her contributions to Warner during a decade of disruption, Mel has become an inspiring leader and an insightful, inventive agent for change. I’m very happy to announce these important promotions and look forward to working with Mel, Peter and the wider team as we chart the future of WMUK”.
Lousada himself is about to be promoted, of course. Currently CEO and Chair of WMG UK, he becomes CEO of Recorded Music for WMG globally next month.[from http://ift.tt/2lvivLP]
