Sony/ATV/EMI has recruited William Booth to the role of Deputy MD of its UK division, according to Music Week. He was most recently Director Of Licensing at collecting society PRS For Music and will rejoin Guy Moot in his new role. Booth previously reported to Sony/ATV UK boss Moot when they both worked at EMI Music Publishing.

Confirming the appointment, Moot says: “I am excited that William has accepted my invitation to ‘come home’. The combination of Sony/ATV and EMI has meant great things for our songwriters and has enabled us to provide them with the best opportunities and service. With William’s help, our future is very bright indeed”.
