Independent publisher Imagem has promoted the GM of its UK-based production library music division to the role of MD for production music across Europe. Alex Black came to Imagem through its acquisition of Boosey & Hawkes, having previously worked as a producer and music PR.
Confirming the promotion, Imagem UK CEO John Minch told CMU: “This recognition is long overdue for Alex. Alongside managing Imagem’s Media catalogues, which include the ‘BBC News’ and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ themes, he was part of the team that helped to acquire and bed in the 5 Alarm acquisition in the US, helped to launch the Imagem libraries in the Netherlands, and has helped us move our libraries into the digital age of hard drives and search engines. In the UK, it’s one of our fastest growing businesses and that is due, entirely, to Alex and his team”.
