EMI Publishing chief to head up combined Sony/EMI in UK
EMI Music Publishing’s UK chief Guy Moot will head up the combined Sony/ATV/EMI business in Britain, and oversee ‘creative’ across Europe, according to Music Week. It follows the departure of Sony/ATV UK MD Rak Sanghvi in June, just before the Sony-led acquisition of the EMI publishing business was completed.
Moot will be President UK and European Creative at the merged publishing business, reporting directly into top man Marty Bandier back in the US. He is one of a relatively small number of EMI execs to be given a top job in the newly combined Sony/EMI publishing outfit.
Elsewhere, it’s also been confirmed that Rob Wiesenthal, the former Sony Corp Of America CFO, will be President of International for the combined Sony/EMI company, leading operations outside the US and UK. He will be supported in the UK by Sony/ATV’s Guy Henderson, who becomes Senior VP International of the combined business.
