Universal Music yesterday announced the appointment of Elizabeth Sobol, currently with management firm IMG Artists, to run the Decca Label Group in the US. In her new New York-based role, Sobol will oversee the US operations of the Deutsche Grammophon, Decca and Mercury Classics labels.
She will report into Max Hole, who leads Universal’s classical operations worldwide in addition to his role heading up Universal International. He told CMU: “I’m delighted to welcome Elizabeth to the Decca Label Group where her passion for music, innovation and creativity make her the ideal choice to develop the Deutsche Grammophon, Decca and Mercury Classics’ labels in the US”.
Sobol added: “It is difficult to adequately express my excitement about working with Max Hole, the Decca Label Group team and all the great artists at Universal and with them, to build the best and most creative set of music labels in America. I have had a rich and rewarding time at IMG Artists and look forward to continued collaboration in the future”.
