US record industry veteran Daniel Glass has confirmed that his company is opening a London office and that it will be run by Sam Rumney, previously producer of Zane Lowe’s show on Radio 1.

Reports of Glassnote’s plans for a London office, and Rumney’s appointment, first circulated last month. Confirming that Rumney would become Glassnote Entertainment Group’s Director Of UK & European Operations, Glass told reporters: “Opening our London office is a natural growth extension of our companies. Many of our artists live in the UK and Europe, and all of our artists love touring these markets”.

On Rumney himself, he added: “Sam is the perfect fit with his excellent taste in music and experience in media and retail. We look forward to adding key players to our UK team soon”.
